So when a friend of mine mentioned that she took up knitting I thought that perhaps I should give it a try. I mean, I do not exactly harbor a love for knits but it could just be a ticket to decreasing my boredom. So yesterday this patient friend of mine came over and introduced me to the world of knitting... well that really makes it sound like we accomplished more than we did... but she got me started, that's for sure.
Now of course would my pregnancy brain allow me to recollect her teachings an hour or so after she left? I think not. As hard as I tried I just couldn't make sense of the stitch! So enter google and several online videos played over and over again and I was finally back on the right track. Right now I am making nothing.... I am just trying to get comfortable with the different stitches (I have no idea if that is the correct terminology). I will say one thing.... it definitely passes the time! And... I've gained a whole new level of respect for the amount of work that goes into a hand knit item.
I don't know if my relationship with yarn will last, but I will ride it out for now and see where it takes me!
