One of Matteo's teachers told me the other day that her hands were constantly cold and I've been wanting to knit toasties for some time now, so I figured this would be an excellent opportunity to learn how to knit using circular needles. I had some extra brown yarn I thought I'd use as practice.
I have to be honest... I hated it. I was using smaller needles than I'm used to and I felt all thumbs! I know I was probably tense and with more practice it'll flow more naturally, but it was oh-so-frustrating! My beloved scissor happy son, Matteo -of recent hairstyling fame- inadvertantly put me out of misery by cutting the yarn. I know I could just tie the darn yarn OR learn that thing you do when you reach the end of a skein, but I was so fed up that I have given up knitting for a spell (it'll be brief, I promise you, my ravelry kin)... AND have confiscated all sharp objects from the boys.
Matteo's birthday is coming up in 2 months, so hopefully my next check in will be happy sewing birthday prep!
