I think I'm in Love.....

In light of mine and Wes's goals to take a little time for ourselves, I went to a knitting class last night. It's something I've been wanting to learn to do for awhile. The opportunity came when Kamille's at Gardner Village was doing their beginning class for 1/2 price this month. I signed up, got my supplies, and waited. Finally the class day came. It was really fun. I caught on really fast, and really enjoyed it. It was also really fun to be there with a group of women. Once everyone got the basics, it was just knitting for the rest of the class. Everyone chatted and had a good time. It makes me want to do a knitting group, or even just all kinds of handwork, for Enrichment, because once you have the basics down you can just sit and chat. What a fun way to get to know people! Also, a fun way to serve together, do a project together, share a skill, etc. Anyway, next week we will finish our scarves. We cast on this week, and our homework is to make the scarf as long as we want it. Next week we will make fringe on the ends. There are all kinds of classes to make all kinds of things. I am excited to make some clogs, baby things, sweaters, socks, just about everything. I didn't think I would enjoy it as much as I am, but it is seriously addicting. I have begun my love affair with knitting.
