My name is Virginia M. Galligan and after turning my hobby of writing into something more by finally becoming published in 2009, I felt the urge to start something new, but what? In 2011 I started a new "hobby"--loom knitting. My friend, Sara M., would have weekly "knitting nights" with a friend. At the time, I wasn't interested in knitting. It did not seem like an activity I would enjoy. Then, after being over to her home on non-knitting night and watching her work on a knitted project, I decided to give it a try.
On my way home from her place, I stopped at my at local department store and picked up some supplies--choosing a circular loom knitting kit and some different colors of yarn. I knew "regular knitting" wasn't for me at that time. Sara M. was both happy and encouraging of my new hobby, even though she is a "regular knitter". Then a strange thing happened, I got hooked!
Soon I was making some hats and scarves. Then, I purchased straight looms to make shawls, bags and baby blankets with, along with other projects that I am currently learning to make now. As Sara M. said, knitting can be relaxing...and it is!
Always remember to have fun while making projects.
Pick different types of yarns along with colors!
