Knitting class was wonderful.
It is hard for me to put it into words. I felt like I had been swallowed into a soft den. A magnificent room filled with the most amazing yarns swimming in color and texture. There was my very own soft spoken teacher gently coaxing the stitches off my needles. I must have looked like a wreck in the beginning, because one of the other ladies looked at me from across the circle and said - BREATHE. Oh yea.. breathe.
I sat there in this den of women listening, learning, knitting, relaxing and before I knew it - three hours had gone by. I was off working on my first project. A little bag that will be felted. Who knew these stitches were capable of coming off my needles?
If anyone out there is thinking about giving knitting a try... go for it! Find a class, group or friend. Having someone start you off on the right foot is worth more than I can say. I can't wait to go back this week.
My thanks to all of you for all of your kind words and encouragement. I feel like I've found a long lost friend.
