Y is for Yarn
Years ago I spent more of my free time on handicrafts, including cross-stitching and needlepoint. My grandmother tried to teach me how to make Granny squares and how to crotchet, neither of which I have ever tried again in my adulthood.
I see a lot of folks learning to knit, forming knitting groups, the new social societies, perhaps. And I think, Sure, I'd like to learn how to knit sometime.
It's probably not so much the actually handicraft that I am craving as much as the time spent with other women, enjoying conversation about family and friends and life. But I would happily purchase some yarn and needles and have a go at a knitting circle.
