A Nitwit Knits

On one of those days in January when you feel like you should set a goal, I declared to the world that I wanted to learn to knit or crochet in 2014.

And so, with the clock ticking quickly toward the end of the year, I held a little party at the barn this week and invited everyone I knew to come on over and join me in learning.  I begged for some teachers to come along too.

I attempted knitting, and the evening was a howling success!  I was surrounded by good friends while the glorious aroma of hot apple cider mingled with vanilla macadamia nut coffee.  And I laughed.  Oh, how I laughed.  It seems like ages since I was laughing so hard I couldn’t stop crying.

First Attempt

Some say knitting is a great way to de-stress.  Well, in my case, most certainly so.  I’ve even given it another go today.  I’m still disastrous at it.  It hasn’t calmed me one bit, but it has given me so much joy just to keep laughing at my pathetic attempts while I enjoy the fun memories of my knitting night.

Very interesting!

I shall try to crochet sometime in 2015.  Seeing just how difficult the knitting turned out to be, I think that one goal should be plenty for the coming year!

    Enjoyed reading your article in the Clovis News Journal online. I had to check the obits to see if it was really Clovis, New Mexico. I went to school in Portales years ago and going to Clovis was going to ‘town’!
