It is giving peace during some crazy (but fun) moments.
I love how you can work with it a little bit at a time, and set it back down. You can take it in the car, to the library, in the front yard while watching the kids play.
I have been knitting for a few months now and I don't have much to show for it. I finally figured out why.
I start on a simple scarf so I can get the rhythm going, so the needles don't feel so awkward to me. Something a beginner should probably do, right? I get the hang of it, and decide I want to do something else, something more difficult, I look at a pattern and go cross eyed. I can't even read them yet.
I talked to Rachel yesterday and she set me straight on the knitting thing. A scarf, yes, then maybe a hat, then maybe a very easy baby sweater.
I guess I have to let myself learn more, so I can do more.
