And by "taking up" I mean, I bought all the stuff, and I have YouTube.
It's going AWESOME. I've gotten as far as what is referred to as "casting on." This is different than casting I have done in the theater. This involves string and a pointy stick. Just one.
But that part is done and now I'm supposed to use TWO needles. I don't QUITE understand the YouTube on this point, so if I could ever EVER convince Ez that bedtime is HAPPY time, maybe just maybe I could figure it out?
And did you know there is "English" knitting and "Continental" knitting? What the heck?
I just want to do cute things with yarn!
Sewing is wonderful, I really do enjoy it. But it's not a "pick it for a 5 minutes" type of hobby. It takes great prep and time, and resources. I feel like knitting could be something I just pick up, knit (OR PURL????) a row, lay it down, and come back later, ya know? Sort of a hobby on the go. My current hobby on the go is checking the Facebook on my phone.... not terribly fulfilling ifyouknowwhatImean.
So, wish me luck, friends, I'm off to knit (OR PURL?)!
