During this week of vacation I decided on one thing...
I was determined to learn how to knit!
My mother is an EXCELLENT knitter, she has done hats and little

things! I picked up my yarn and needles, than we headed to a Tea Room for lunch
that was close by....It was SOOO delicious!
We both ordered Peach tea, Quiche, and Artichoke Soup!
It was nice to just be able to sit and chat,
knowing that once we were finished we wouldn't have to clean up afterwords. :)
I knew I wanted to start off making a hat, I know people normally
start off with making potholders(or so I have heard), but since I have been burned
countless times by these "so called" potholders, I decided that a hat would be a better option. :)
I found a pattern on the internet for a " Cable Slouch Hat", which is EXACTLY
what I was wanting! What luck!
I started off on my practice yarn getting the feel for knitting
by doing a couple rows than started on in...
Then I started in on my real project!
