My kids joined our local 4H club a few weeks ago, and my daughter decided to take a Fibers Art project. She had her first meeting last night and had the choice to learn knitting or crochet. She had some indecision about it, but in the end picked up some knitting needles and was taught how to knit in the Continental method.
I asked her on the way home about her hesitance when asked which she wanted to learn. She expressed to me that she was thinking about “learning to crochet so that she could work some of my patterns and do projects with me, but then if she learned to knit she could teach me”. Needless to say I smiled either one she decided to learn it was ultimately about what was most important, spending time with someone she loves.
Getting ready for school today, she asked to take her knitting with her so she could practice at recess. Then while dropping her off she informed me that after school today I was going to have my first lesson. So, I am getting ready, a couple of more hours and I’ll be having my first knitting lesson. (Even if the really lesson is a reminder of what is really important).
