Must Be Winter

 

IMG_2867I took a knitting class last winter. When the instructor asked why we had joined the class, I responded, “Winter!” Well, it must be winter again because after a spring, summer, and fall of neglect, I rummaged through my yarn and needles and have been working on a hat.

To be honest, I attempted to make this hat shortly after the class was over and ended up ripping it apart and rewinding the yarn. Thanks to memories from the class and a visit to youtube for tips on joining on circular needles, I’m humming along this time.

I’ve always been in awe of people who could produce beautiful sweaters, hats, and scarves with seemingly magical flying fingers. I don’t really aspire to that. I’m happy sitting by the fire with a book on tape unfolding a tale while I add rows to my hat. Cup of hot tea by my side works too.

I know people who can knit and watch TV. That would not be me. I need to focus on the stitches and do a lot of counting. But I’m enjoying the process.

Think I’ll add this to the list of good things about winter.

    Great job! I’m impressed! I crocheted a pretty blue blanket for Liam, a scarf for my sister (before we moved) for Christmas, and I’m working on another crocheted scarf for Aly, but, my knitting needles sit idle in the box in the closet. I need more than help from YouTube to keep my knitting going. Happy winter!
