Knitting Class

Standard

“Properly practiced, knitting soothes the troubled spirit, and it doesn’t hurt the untroubled spirit either.”
― Elizabeth Zimmermann

When I was a little girl, I would visit my Gram. Across the street, lived a sweet little lady in a wonderful house that smelled of hot tea. One day, while I was visiting Gram, her neighbor walked over and presented me with a brown paper bag. Inside, was a colorful poncho and matching purse. Pink and blue striped. With fringe. Beautifully knitted. I wore the poncho and carried the purse with pride. They were one-of-a-kind.

I am taking a knitting class. The scarf I am creating will be colorful. It will be knitted with studious concentration. When the weather permits, I will wear it with pride. It will be one-of-a-kind.

  1. You reminded me of Aunt Nellie, who lived down the street but who wasn’t really my aunt. She nurtured me and is one of the first people who helped me see a better way of living. Thank you.

  2. Good luck with your knitting! I learned about a year and a half ago, and it can be a struggle, but it’s so worth it! I made most of my Christmas gifts this year by knitting – it’s such a fun and productive hobby! #SOL15

  3. I learned to knit later in life- in the teacher’s lounge along with a few other teachers who wanted to learn. I make mostly scarves, nothing fancy, but have always marveled at the way I can take nothing but yarn and create something. Good luck with your project!
