Knitting seems like one of those mysterious yet common activities. I have one friend who can knit drunk and speaking a foreign language; I have another who knit a men's thong. I decided to take a class at StitchDC when a Groupon came along. Needless to say, it was a total disaster and though I was supposed to start a scarf I ended up with something looking like an overgrown tumor.



From hank to skein.



Even MoBob can knit.

I've read that people usually are able to either knit or crochet. I tried knitting but can't get the hang of it, but crochet is much easier for me.

There was one crochet guy in the class - I guess it's like switching between typing and playing the piano!

Haha, interesting analogy. Some people can do both. My grandma used to be able to crochet just using her fingers.

I don't think I can ever get to that point - I thought I was going to hurt myself with the knitting needles.

Oh how I love knitting. If you ever want a free lesson, I'll hook you up! I have lots of patience and I love helping people get it. I promise your project won't look like a tumor!

In the meantime I'll have to cope with YouTube videos....

I LOVE knitting and MoBob is a Rock Star!! I've been trying to get Mike to consider knitting. I think he would do well with it.

I can crochet and knit. Not big projects but basics. Enough to enjoy it and want to learn how to do more. I'm working on some squares right now for a blanket.

I despair of even getting to the basics!
