I love summer arts festivals. If you are in Ohio or want to go on a road trip, the Columbus Arts Festival is coming up on June 7-9, 2013 in Columbus, Ohio. Check out info here: http://columbusarts.com/events/86883-2013-columbus-arts-festival/

This summer, I’ve decided to throw my hat into the crafting ring and recently, I have been researching knitting. I learned how to crochet
long ago from my father and my grandmother, however, I never learned how to knit. I also ran across two great websites:
The Knitting Guild Association
Ravelry – a free site for knitters and crocheters
I have started and stopped a many crochet projects. I fully intend to become engaged with these groups and to join my local knitting group. My real goal is to actually complete a project and I figure joining a group will be the perfect solution to my procrastination.
