#29 - Learn to knit or relearn to crochet
Completed: Jan 20 & 27, 2007
I took the 'Learn to Knit' class with Jamie at Lettuce Knit and talk about fun!!!! It was kinda crazy because both days started off early (on a Saturday... for me that is huge to get up early on a Saturday) as well as being coooooooooooooold and snowy:
One of the most wonderful things about going was the atmosphere was relaxed and the instructor, Megan was wonderful. We went at a nice pace and it was very low stress. Making mistakes was ok - in fact, it was encourage not to go back and try to fix them but to leave it. It was everyone first scarf after all!
What is really interesting is although I very quickly felt like "I can do this!!!" I knew that there was so much more to learn! But, I found this exciting as opposed to (what I could normally feel like would be) discouraging. Because I felt like I learned something that I could make things with, and if I learned more - great! And if I don't, well that is ok too! I had to confess I didn't come into this from being a complete newb, I used to crochet when I was young so there was a certain amount that was familiar in a round about way. And although knitting is completely compulsive, I still have as of yet to finish my scarf. But, I did make a little bookmark which I gave to Jamie, and you can kinda see here in my hand - (its blue):
