As a lover of lists....I have a list of things I would like to do. There are many things on this list and some of them may never be done but I like to look at the list and dream....
One thing that has been on my list for years is:
Learn to Knit
Every time I visit Etsy and see the beautiful scarfs, hats and sweaters and I get all excited and think about knitting. But I never do anything about it. Mostly because I have so many other activities that I do (quilting, stamping, gardening, cooking and blogging) and I think a part of me thinks I won't be able to get the hang of it and I will get frustrated with myself and feel stupid (ie...Mod Podge disaster of 2009).
But I just saw something this morning that has made me want to knit. I can feel the fire beginning to burn in my belly....the passion has arrived. I Will Learn To Knit.
It started HERE.
I have a love of Anthropologie Sweaters but they are very expensive. I've always thought it would be so amazing to be able to knit these beautiful things for myself!
Then I found myself HERE. Isn't it beautiful...and she give directions on how to make the sweater!
Do you knit? How do you get started? Can I learn from a book or should I find a class?
