I took a knitting classes this past fall at our local yarn store. For a month, one night a week, I met with other women who were also looking for an experience that complimented their "learning to knit via you.tube" moments. I had a blast each week, learning a bit of knitting techniques but more importantly just enjoying some time to myself.
Yet, in all honesty, I've felt like a complete knitting student slacker. We had three projects to complete and though I've nearly completed all three, none ever actually got off the needles without Bea's unassisted involvement. Lesson learned: if my knitting basket is within reach of the toddler in residence, then projects become fair game to all.
This week, my goal is to finish this oh so simple hat for Beatrix. It's my second (maybe third) time starting it. Yes, I can't believe what I fess up to on this blog! I'm determined to finish it for no other reason than earning justification for new yarn and a new project. I've cast on a few extra stitches to make it a little bit bigger than the original hat I knitted so that Bea can use it next winter too (hopefully).
So off I go to knit and watch some of the what's left of the Golden Globe awards.
