Okay, I have not totally forgotten about learning to knit. I think about it all the time. I yearningly look at my sad half finished little scarf everyday. The problem? Two kids, no time, yarn issues. I know, excuses, excuses, excuses. Really though, I can’t knit when the kids are around because one wants to pull on the string and the other wants to play sword fighting with my sticks!! So, I have tried to knit during nap/quiet time or when the kids go to bed for the night. But, I’m one of those crafters that has a gazillion projects half started and when I finally have time to do something, I just end up getting discouraged looking at the pile of half finished projects and end up reading other people’s blogs instead! It is sad I know. I even tried knitting while watching the olympics, but ended up with holes in my scarf. I am still too much in the learning phase to be trying to watch TV and knit at the same time. I could hurt someone.
I promised myself I wouldn’t start something new to knit until I finished this scarf. The problem is that I dont really like the color or the yarn (acrylic) and I cast on 25 stitches but now have 27 which may be due to the two holes (see white circles). They seem so obvious when I have it in hand but not so obvious here. Anyway, there is ribbing to this scarf, so maybe once I get to that part I’ll like it a little better. This scarf would actually look really cute on my little E-guy. So, I will tread onward and finish this scarf!!!
I did finally manage to go to the knitting group I found on meetup.com. My hubby actually pushed me out the door because I hate going outside my comfort zone. I’m glad he did. I had a really nice wine-I mean time!!! Okay, there was wine there and I did enjoy a glass full but the company was very nice as well! I even met another crazy blogging person (Hi Tasha!) I am glad I went and I will definitely go to the next meet up! Hopefully I’ll have a new project in hand!!
