After a lifetime of avoiding all things crafty I have succumbed! I felt myself mysteriously and inexplicably drawn towards the idea of knitting much to my own dismay. Unlike most things I "decide" to do (only to drop them in a few months time after I've announced them to everyone I know ) this plan has been secretly formulating in my mind, waiting for the opportune moment - which was really waiting for my "knitting Sensai" to return from maternity leave.
During our lunch breaks she began to school me in the ways of the yarn and much to my further dismay I discovered that not only do I like to knit but I'm a process knitter to boot! This is a very annoying way to be, but we all have our crosses to bear.
And so now I've been allowed by said Sensai to begin an actual project. A scarf! I have some metal needles that are slippery suckers that frankly I'm not overly fond of right now, my Italian fancy-pants yarn, a boyfriend who is becoming increasingly jealous of the time I spend with that yarn... and away I go!
