I joined the Dewey’s Books reading challenge several weeks ago (it’s early in the year … I’ll get my reviews posted!)
The Challenge has several mini-challenges throughout 2009. I’m going to take up “Dewey’s Knit-a-Long” mini-challenge.
Now that the holiday season is over, it’s time for new projects! Help celebrate Dewey’s love of books AND of knitting! This is a mini-challenge for those of us that are honoring her memory by reading the books she talked about on her blog, and who also share her love of knitting! How about dedicating at least one of your 2009 knitting (or other handwork!) projects to Dewey’s memory? Perhaps you would like to knit or crochet some things for a local charity? Or if you’ve never learned to knit, maybe it’s time to learn!
Now, as you can guess by the title of this post, I’m not a knitter, but, in the spirit of becoming more creatively fit, I’m jumping in with both feet! I have knit a few scarves in the past, and once knit a sweater (that came out large enough to be worn by me and two of my closest friends, AT THE SAME TIME!).
Our church has a knitting circle of sorts, that creates handmade items to give to those in need. While I love the idea of working on a soft sweet baby blanket, I’m going to start with a simple rectangle … yes, I’m back to scarves!
I’ll pick up yarn this week, pull out my knitting books (maybe review one, if the copyright isn’t too long ago), and get the needles click-clacking. I’ll post my progress in a week or so.
Are any of you who are participating in the Dewey’s Books Challenge joining me in this mini-challenge #2? Can I inspire you to give it a try, even if you’re not reading for the Challenge?
