In a spontaneous effort to learn something new, my friend Leah (the bride from the wedding video we shot
!) and I started taking a knitting class. It is held in the cutest little store called LMNOP right by my house. I haven’t taken a class since I graduated from college in 2006, so I have to admit I was a little nervous. I am (was?) absolutely clueless about knitting and it was a slow start. But by the end of the two hours class, I started getting the hang of it! There are two more classes in the next two weeks and we are supposed to have a finished scarf by the end, just in time for chilly weather!
Even though I was a little worried going into the class I’m so glad I signed up. It’s really important to me to continue learning new things as I grow older and not get too comfortable doing the same thing all the time. I really want to embrace as many skills as I can, especially now that I’ve gotten so involved in the handmade world. I think knitting is a good start. And sewing is next. ;]
What is something new that you want to learn? And do you knit? Can you give me some tips? :]
