But I was wrong! My childhood dream of learning to knit is happening! I love it too. It's great to do when I have a few minutes, and I love that I can take it with me. Although, I had to learn the hard way that knitting in the car makes me quite sick! I was inspired to knit by Soule Mama, and at her recomendation I used the books Stich 'n Bitch and Kid's Knitting. I only know one stitch, and I cast on eight rows and somehow now have ten, but I'm knitting! Plus, my project is a scarf for Max's toy, and toys generally do not expect perfection (and neither do six- I mean seven!- year old boys!)
In addition, it must be said that my dreams are all funded by my fabulous husband. How wonderful that he is willing to work (very dilligently I might add) so that I can persue motherhood and other artistic persuits. I hope that my family has many more cozy handknits to follow!
