About that knitting lesson...

So here's the deal with this knitting business. I tried it. For a while. May I make an admission? I don't like doing something badly. Even when it's my first try, I like to "pick it up quickly" which is what I'm used to hearing in references to myself when it comes to creative things. "She picked it up so fast!!!" And so on and so forth. I am not picking this up fast. I mean, I'm making stitches. It just seems every time I count how many stitches I have, the number is greater than last time. No matter what I do! I don't think that's considered a good thing. I have maybe an 8 x 3 inch segment of scarf and it seems to keep getting wider! Horrid. I'm still gonna' wear it.

These other non-knitting women who read my blog seem to want to try their hand at such humiliation, too! I recall this happening at the old workplace, too. A bunch of colleagues got together on lunch break to learn to knit. I didn't go...that was during the time when I figured I'd just buy what they all made. I think a couple of them aren't still trying, though.

Is it time to try again? Maybe after Christmas I'll host that knitting party suggested in the comments of my last post. I can't believe I'm saying this. But why not? We AREN'T the old ladies of my early memories. We love to wear fashionable scarves and the more the better...I'm addicted. I don't have nearly enough of them. So what would be the alternative? Seems like a knitting party. I know several knitting geniuses and surely we can get the ratio of "those who knit" and "those who dream of knitting" in a good balance. More on that...
