Not long ago I decided that I wanted to learn how to knit. My sister can knit anything and she always says how relaxing it is. So I filled my head with pictures of knitted socks and beautiful blankets being masterfully crafted by me. It was a beautiful vision. Doesn't it look easy and sooooo relaxing? I couldn't wait to start......relaxing I mean. Well the photo above is what was in my head when I signed up for knitting classes and the photo below is what is actually happening. So to all you knitters out there, I tip my half knitted square to you for alas my skills lie elsewhere for the moment. In a grave with a tombstone which reads "It seemed like a good idea at the time".
