crafting again

I'm crafting again. I can needle tat with one hand! I'm also knifty knitting ( knitting on a round loom) I'm so happy!! Thank you Barb for wanting to learn to knit. I taught Barb how to knit with knitting needles and she gave me knifty kniting.
tatting with a tatting needle is a bit of a challenge. I keep using the wrong thread but I"ll figure it out. I can do the actual tatting better than before I had a stroke. It even looks okay.
I'm walking more without a cane. The therapist hasn't taken it away yet. I'm just trying to lead a normal like again.

Life is good!! jk is doing okay. He worries about me getting frustrated with my crafting. Crafting is a frustrating thing. nothing new there. I was young the first time I learned how to craft so he missed all the cussing the first time around.

Hey Riza-

Sorry we have been outta touch. I hope that things are well with you. Zoe has been sick, so maybe by next week we could stop by for a visit.

I found the coolest crochet scarf maker in the universe. I thought you would enjoy her web site as well as her delicious scarves. It makes me was to start to crochet right away... only I don't know how. So, if you ever want to teach me and don't mine some swearing...


Talk to you soon. We love you! Say hello to John. We love him too.

Hey, Riza. I am not swearing too much... maybe I am not doing it right. Are you SURE that swearing is an integral part of crafting? Thanks for being such a great knitting coach. I can't wait to see what you are doing with the knifty knitter. It is great that you are fondling the wool again. Thanks for letting me be your craft buddy. Barb
