I said I would do it – learn to knit when we returned to the U.S. And I am. I’m real exciting these days.
This is how far I’ve gotten:
The knit stitch, and I guess I managed the purl… but only with the help of YouTube.
I also just finished Jane Eyre , which I downloaded free on Kindle. I got the Kindle to take to Argentina thinking I would do all this reading to unplug and unwind from the craziness of the missions life late, late at night. Nope. I was usually just cleaning up from dinner or company at 11. We had to move back to the U.S. for me to find time to read again. I LOVED Jane Eyre. Top 5 All-Time Reads in my book, without a doubt. The heights and depths of the trials and triumphs of human life and love (and suffering and hate) so delectably written. Kept me up til 3am one night, I just couldn’t put it down! This may be this year’s Read-Aloud to the kiddlings.
Now I need to join the local library KnitWits group and have the old ladies show me how this knitting thing is really done.
