For my birthday, Frank bought me my first knitting needles and practice starter yarn after declaring I was going to learn to knit this winter. So, we went to The Yarnery to scope out the goods, and am checking out taking a beginning knitting class there, or possibly at the Crafty Planet (THE coolest yarn and fabric store I’ve been to yet). Of course, I needed to learn just a tad about it before embarking on a class because the beginning classes start with mittens. Yes, you heard me right – Mittens. So, I googled some knitting “how to” videos and learned how to cast but when it came to the actual knitting part, I was lost. So, my mother stops in from time to time to reteach me, and the ladies at work keep showing me, but for some reason, I’m not getting the hang of it. So, I bought more fabric to sew some baby bloomers to blow off the steam (who can’t knit?!), and I’ll get back to it soon. More on this later.
