I bought “this”:http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=8239033888 on “ebay”:http://www.ebay.com just to give it a whirl. I also picked up “this book”:http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/0789426374/qid=1133927974/sr=8-1/ref=pd_bbs_1/002-7235790-3509643?n=507846&s=books&v=glance at the local library and read it to the kids (yes, all of them, it was highly entertaining). We also replayed “this episode”:http://www.diynetwork.com/diy/shows_dkng/episode/0,2046,DIY_18180_36321,00.html of “Knitty Gritty”:http://www.diynetwork.com/diy/shows_dkng/0,2044,DIY_18180,00.html and then I tried it out. Well, as you can see, it’s a definite first attempt – and not what you hope for – but I keep hearing that practice makes it go much better. So, we’ll see – maybe I’ll get some more roving under the tree to try out some more. It was fun and educational, for the kids and I, both.

In other news, I’m considering joing “Secret Pal 7″:http://secretpalseven.blogspot.com/ – are you?
