Knit 1, Purl 1

Knit 1, Purl 1

So, I've taken up the knitting. I've just started, but I think I'm really going to like it. It's good, tedious, repetitive fun. I am most definitely a beginner. I can't get my edges very tight. They always seem to end up loose. Also, as you can see from my example.. I messed up by doing 2 rows of purl stitches. I was able to correct this without undoing it AGAIN. I think I've started over about 37 times. I got a book and then I got a DVD cuz the book was confusing to me. The DVD rocks cuz it shows you and explains stuff and each section is seperate, so essentially it teaches you a lesson then stops so you can practice. When you're ready, you start up the next lesson.

On a completely different note, we went camping this weekend with some friends. We went out to some land with a primitive cabin near Mason, TX. We were there from Saturday afternoon to Monday morning. Saturday night was just killer awesome. Our friends had their 3 kids, and brother there. We played Catchphrase while the grownups got silly drunk and we had a friggin' blast. I had so much fun, that I ended up getting up in the middle of the night to go pee and added a bit of hurling to the list. I think it was more from the sweet wine I brought and not drinking enough water. Cuz I wasn't THAT drunk. The next night was much more somber, cuz all the kids except the youngest left. It was no less fun, but it was definitely a different fun.

We also ate at this one cafe there called Willow Creek Cafe. I think we ended up eating there three times. It was lishous! They had meringue pies with the highest meringue I've ever seen on a pie. I think Mike has pictures on his website, so I'll try to grab one or something.

Ok, just a quick random update. Felt like I needed to write something. So there :P

  1. I learnt to knit by watching my mother. However, being a leftie and watching her knitting when I was in front of her (instead of beside her), made me knit in a funny way. I cannot knit straight down, it always goes in a diagonal direction... Pretty weird. Well, haven't done any knitting in about 15 years...
