Sorry, I’m Knitting… July 8, 2009

Posted by Mitchell in Home.

I’ve wanted to learn how to knit since I was a kid.  And on this trip I finally decided to do something about it and bought a “How to Teach Yourself Knitting” kit in Skagway Alaska.  I spent much of my time on the way back trying to learn how to knit with limited results.  The yarn I got isn’t really the best for beginners and certainly isn’t really very good for the size of the needles in the kit.  Anyway, now I’m back home with yarn galore and the last little bit of vacation time left.  So…knitting.

Still, I can’t keep my public hanging so here’s a picture of the last we would see of the sun for quite a while at the end of the first day of the cruise:

Bye-bye Mr. Sun!

Bye-bye Mr. Sun!

Heh. I learned how to knit just enough to make a scarf. But I never learned how to finish it, so it just sat on the needles, waiting. . .

Thanks for the update and enjoy your free time!

Enas – I actually learned how to knit when I was about 9. But I only did it for a day or two – I got bored – and never picked the sticks up again, so I forgot how.

Have fun!

Lipstick, do you still have it around? Binding off an end isn’t really very hard. I’m taking a little Beginning Knitting class at a local fabric store early next month. It’s only $15 for two three-hour sessions on Saturdays. Maybe you might want to get into knitting again?

Enas, no, it doesn’t exist any more, but that’s kind of you to offer to teach me. I was about 9 when the abandoned scarf incident happened. Only about (cough) 20 years ago (cough). *Lightning bolt from Heaven strikes me for a huge lie*


That knitting class sounds like fun, but I’ll be in PA with my mom then. She’s getting a knee replaced and I’ll be with her to do the laundry, cook some food and swim in their pool!

That’s pretty smart of the fabric store to do classes, because the students will end up buying yarn and supplies from them.

Wonder if Mom still has my old needles. . .
