While my house is upside down with renovating, I decided to try my hand at a knitting class. I actually thought it might be a peaceful past time to get some "ZEN" happening.
I am laughing as I write this because I went to my knitting class all eager and ready and realized I was really rusty and quite the challenging student!
Lynne (my very patient teacher was very discreet and helpful).
I missed steps and dropped stitches and finally caught on but probably should have done a wee practise prior to the class start date!
What am I making? "Toe-up Socks on 2 Circulars with Lynne"
I did not know prior to this class that this is possible but now I know.
I have caught on to at least what I have to do up to the heel part. The next class is about the heel joined to the rest of the sock. I also caught on that Shall We Knit in Waterloo has wonderful and luscious yarns, great classes, books and information on knitting and crocheting and it's very near my home (almost too near!).
I have a head start on these socks for next winter and I am thinking there may be brightly wrapped knitted objects under an evergreen tree this December!
This is all if I can find the time away from quilting and sewing, but it's a refreshing activity that allows my mind to wander into quilt wonderland while I am knitting away!
Happy Monday, enjoy this lovely weather ☀️☀️😊
