New obsession found at the end of knitting needles

First, a correction

I want to apologize to any of our readers who tried to reach Tammy Else at Lutheran Children's Hospital based on the number we published in last Thursday's column. Tammy can be reached at 435-7344.

And now, my new obsession

I've tried to knit before, and I've given up.

Most recently, I started a shrug pattern sometime last year but I put it away after knitting all the pieces because I was intimidated about putting them together.

Well, my Math4Knitters pal Lara helped me out and I got the pieces put together and finally, FINALLY, I began knitting the ribbing around the shrug late last week.

I'm happy to say that it is nearly complete. And, I already have tons of other projects in mind for my next knitting adventure. Wonder what it'll be: Socks with my new sock yarn purchases? Or a gift sweater out of some pretty cool yarn I discovered recently?

I'll keep you posted.
