I am not one to write an entire post on what I did last night. You would all be bored to tears so I usually spare you such details. But last night is an exception. I am so excited to report what I did.
I did what most new bloggers probably do, spend all their time reading...mmm..themselves. I was so proud of me that I just went to my blog and PW's blog. I did not yet realize the wonderful world of mom bloggers. Then I started searching around other mom bloggers sites. Each afternoon, while kiddos napped, I found myself clickin' my way to some really neat women.
And then I found the small things blog and became her #1 fan. Although, as you know in blogger world, you can be someones #1 fan and they have no idea who you are. Well, let's just say I read her daily, and then I started reading her comments, and then I started visiting the blogs of people who commented on her site.
And all these women, Ginny included, were amazingly talented knitters. They made the coolest stuff. Like stuff I want to wear.I loved the yarn. I loved all the colors. And I could just picture myself sitting in a cuddly chair, sipping coffee KNITTING, while my little ones scampered at my feet. I don't know why I picture such foolish things, but nevertheless, I was so inspired! I thought to myself.."Self..you can do this!!"
So about 3 months later (you know how easy it is to find spare time to learn to knit) I found myself a little yarn shop, called up and signed up for a class. And now I am signed up for 4 classes and I am proud to say I hope I will be the owner of a hand knit $60 scarf. Yarn is darn expensive (the 4 week class was 40)!!
The class was awesome. The lady teaching was WONDERFUL!! She was so patient and she really knew how to knit..which probably comes in handy OWNING a knitting store. I had a blast. I casted on and made several rows and then made several mistake so I had to pull it all out...which I am told is normal.
I was a little bummed I was not walking out of the lesson claiming this cute hat as my own. But I am grateful for the simple progress I made.
Knitting is not that hard, but my fingers were really tired. And of course, I know think my next step in life will be to one day own a knitting yarn store..
Because that is how my brain works.
Stay tuned for me to show you the finished product. Hopefully not in typical mom time..but really motivated to finish my $60 scarf time!!
