A week or two ago, my sister tried to teach me to knit. Was it successful? No. I mean maybe a little bit. But not very much. I thought I was a natural when I first started...but then I realized I was only casting on and wasn't even knitting yet. OOPS. Somehow the way I was knitting was way too tight. I think I need thicker needles, or something.
In my defense, it's a little hard to learn to knit when your psycho dog is laying on the ottoman, staring at you, waiting to lunge toward you and clamp his jaw down on your knitting needles.
But you know what, I'll try again someday. And when I learn, I will be making infinity scarfs all day every day. And then when I'm a professional knitting guru, I'll make this cable knit throw:
Can you guys knit? How long did it take you to learn?
PS: I mentioned here that I was gradually dyeing my hair back to my natural, so for those of you that wanted a pic, that was it up there!
