Learn 15 New Things!

Last weekend I met a fabulous new friend – Sam – who came over and taught me how to knit!

Sam is another awesome person I connected with through OkCupid. She’s a non-profit working, art making, Etsy store having – https://www.etsy.com/people/SamLenser, tea drinking, dancing, baking, fun loving, spirituality practicing lady. I had a great time getting to know her and getting to know knitting!

Sam explained the knots for getting started, then she showed me how to hold the needles and make the first line. I started making a scarf because they are simple, and they have the same number of knots each time. I didn’t have trouble at first, but the second line – where the actual knitting began – was tricky at first. She brought over her books to help me too, which was great!

Eventually I got it, but I have a lot of practicing to do to make pretty, even patterns. My first project might be sloppy, but I’m having fun!

I can’t wait to hang out again, but she’s moving next weekend and will be busy for a few weeks! Hopefully be the next time we hang out I’ll have some progress to show her!
