I vaguely remember my grandmother showing me how to knit when I was young - six or seven years old - but once I was introduced to sewing, well what can I say. Knitting was left behind and forgotten.
Perhaps it is time to pick up the knitting needles once again. The people I've spoken to who knit find it to be an incredibly enjoyable hobby. And some of the knitted creations I've seen on knitter's blogs are fantastic!
So when one of my girlfriend's mentioned that she and her eight year old daughter were planning on attending the Knit Out and Crochet event at the Mall of America this weekend I made a decision to check out the festivities myself. There is a wide variety of knitting and crochet activities planned through out the day and the best part is the cost - free!
I will definitely try and get to the free knitting and crochet lessons described as "beginner one-on-one knitting and crochet lessons in a relaxed, informal setting. Take home instructions, yarn, needles or a hook!"
A trip to SR Harris had been planned for this weekend, but that fabric store will still be there next weekend and this event will not. I'll take lots of pictures and report back on the fun!Pin It
