I have been trying off and on to learn how to knit for the past 20 years. Ok, so it’s been more off than on, but on multiple occasions, I’ve sat down to learn and but felt like I had two left hands. My mom is an excellent knitter – and I think the last time she helped me I would have caught on, if it weren’t for the fact that I was pregnant and my hands kept going numb! I’m sure my problem is that I have never stuck with it long enough for it to sink in.
So now that the kids are a bit older and my hands don’t go numb on me, I’ve decided this is the year to defeat my kryptonite and learn how to knit. I’m always asking my mom and mother-in-law to make things for me, so I’m sure they’d both be quite happy if I’d learn how to do it for myself! My mother-in-law is here for a couple weeks, so I got out my supplies (that my mom and mother-in-law have given me over the years!) before she arrived so I’d be ready. I’ll keep you posted on my progress! I mean, if Hollywood can knit, surely I can too, right? My parents are hoping to come visit in March, and hopefully by then I’ll have the basics down and she can help me take the next step!
