Learning a New Skill
I enrolled in a continuing education class (two-color knitting), but I was the only student. The instructor, a Tuesday night knitting group regular, is going to teach me on Tuesday nights.
This week I began my project - a two-color Christmas stocking. Learning to knit Continental is proving to be a big challenge. It is so different to pick the yarn rather than throw the yarn, which is what I do with the right hand. Yet, this old dog is slowly learning a "new" trick. Errors and all, I like the way the stocking is turning out.
