making

I’ve had this incredible desire to knit, which I’ve only done a teeny bit of.  Mostly I crochet.  My first project was a beanie, on the round.  It wasn’t as scary as I thought it would be.  You Tube helped a whole bunch.  First I watched this, then I accidentally dropped a stitch and found this.  Thank goodness! I thought all was lost. I am half way through my second beanie now.

Then I had to make this delicious popcorn.  My first attempt was disasterous. I used a very heavy bottomed pan which kept cooking the syrup after I turned off the heat, making it burn all too quickly.  The second batch was much better, but oh so close to becoming burnt like the first. Next time I will add some nuts and watch it very, very closely.  Yes, there will be a next time…

    Thank you so much for the links to the tutorials. I guess I’m not very computer literate. I had no idea I could find things like that on youtube! I’ve wanted to learn to knit for some time, but don’t live near a knitting store and all of my friends who knit are at least an hour away. Now, I know where to start looking.

    Love your hat. The stripes are great. The popcorn has made me hungry. Looks yummy.
