I’ve got two knitting needles and ball of wool!
It’s the beginning. I’ve just been going and going – trying to get a rhythm. Trying to get my head around it. Look at it. Figure it out. Laugh. Enjoy. Take pride.
There are holes.
Stitches crossed over and in a tangle. (Still haven’t worked out how I do this mistake!)
It’s a wonky, holey moley mess. I started with 44 stitches and I’m up to 52! Mmm. There is more to be worked out. I’m having fun. Learning is fun. I like to learn new things. I like when we’ve met people this week my children yell (and yes they’re yelling really really loudly) at people that their Mama is learning to knit. Not “Hi nice to see you” but jumping up and down with excitement, unintelligible loud noise that when translated is a proud exclamation of my learning. Noice. I’m chuffed (… and a little surprised that they noticed – they’re very busy you know).
Remember when I learnt to crochet? That was all wonky and messy too.
Off to Brown Owls today for lots of knitting action. Maybe some of these issues will be resolved by the end of the day… or maybe not.
It’s fun to record where we start don’t you think? Fun to look back later on and see how far we’ve come?
