I’m REALLY cool now

I’m a grandma. I have a cat and now I knit.
My friend Kristen (who ran the Portland Marathon with me) is a crazy awesome knitter and makes the most awesome stuff. For about a month now I’ve been asking her about knitting and watching videos on how to knit. Well, learning how to knit again. My grandma taught me a long time ago.


Last night I finally went to the knitting store and bought yarn for my first project! A scarf!

Now I’m really cool… I have a cat AND I knit… Ryan is really lucky to have such a crazy girlfriend like me 🙂

PS – My legs are still sore from the half-marathon. I ran two miles this morning and was like – I’m outta here.

    cute picture of your cat and beautiful knitting, but beware, cats like nothing better than to unravel and tangle!

    Haha I’m a grandma too, it’s fine. We’ll have to have a grandma status party one day where we talk about old times and knit sweaters 🙂

  3. I totally knot too! I am trying to learn how to arm knit though. I have a video tutorial, but haven’t watched it yet (need some new yarn!) it makes a really cool chunky scarf though!

    Now you need a rocking chair, magnifying glasses that you wear at the end of your nose, put your hair in a bun at the back of your head down by your neck, and some “forwards-only” slippers – the “complete granny package!” If anyone can pull it off and look rockin’ hot, it will be you!!! Go granny, GO!!!
