Taking Up a New Hobby - Knitting
Day by day I looked at the yarn and needles staring at me as a reminder, right by my bed to learn already... Finally last night, I looked up some Youtube videos, and learned the basics. Everything seemed impossibly hard, even something as simple (now simple) as "how to cast on." I found myself in a knot, and frustrated with videos that seemed to be so fast moving. Then somehow after replaying between two videos I got it. I learned to cast on, which is unbelievably easy, and I laugh at myself now. And then I seemed to start knitting..I haven't figured it all out yet, but after fiddling with it last night, I managed to have something to show for it.
I'm not sure what I'm making yet, but will continue to practice. Oh and I don't even know how to finish, like close the ends... LOL..if you are a knitter and found yourself on this page, you might be giggling at me. Like I tell my son, practice makes perfect..at least better right? ;)
What new hobby have you picked up lately? Do you knit? Crochet? Have any tips for me? :)
