Knitting therapy: I got brave. I decided to take some knitting classes at our local shop - Haus of Stitches. I've been wanting to learn to knit for a number of years. I'm aware of how relaxing it is (supposed to be). I've even tried with minimal success to learn online. I am a solitary learner. But the time came. I needed friends. I needed support. I needed to get past my phobia of making mistakes in front of others. Besides my typical uptight body I enjoyed myself. I met people I know and new people. I think there will be much potential for friends, much potential for relaxation, after I get some knitting behind me, or maybe accomplished in front of me. I'll keep you updated.

Angels be with you.

Sounds like a good endeavor for you. I did some crocheted last winter. Let's just say...some good...some not so good. Years agao I thought I would knit a hat and scarf for my hub for the holidays. Well the scarf was fine, but lets just say...it was a very unusual hat! I thought our guests were gonna fall off the chair with laughter! Hope you have more success!

Well done, Wendy! :) It'll be great to be able to chat with real people, and laugh together over your knitting! You've done very well indeed to start straight in there with a circular needle! It took me years to get round to using one of those, so be very proud of yourself, and have fun! :)
I love knitting when I'm in thr irght frame of mind - have to have plenty of patience, as it can take a long time to finish things sometimes..
Enjoy your new hobby, angel :)
Much Love & Warm Hugs,
Suze xXx

My MIL has tried to teach me to knit many times, but I've had little patience for it. I want to try again... Good for you to take the step to get out there and not only learn something new, but also to meet new people. I met one of my closest friends at a class. xoxo, Fran

the gift of time
