LUV 2 KNIT
Ever since my regular job (directing duplicate bridge games) has been eliminated due to the COVID-19 pandemic, I have been engaging in one of my favorite past times, knitting. I have made many different items such as shawls, scarfs, afghans, baby blankets and stuffed animals, sweaters, tank tops, washcloths and kitchen scrubbies, and , yes, even knit face masks for my grandson's swimming instructors.
Much to my surprise, when I sent some pictures to show a friend how I was surviving self-quarantine, she returned email asking me to create a project for her. So....... if you are interested...
Also am enjoying other crafts --- handpainting on almost anything and doing custom calligraphy for place cards, invitations, addresses on envelopes, etc. So in the pictures below I will show you some of that too.
