Another Knitting Class - Yeah!

I'm on week two of a Sweater Knitting class at Hill Country Weavers.

Last week was a bit hectic. I spent the whole two hours trying out patterns, looking for yarn, doing a guage swatch, finding out the yarn wouldn't work, and starting over again. I went through four patterns before I found one that would worked.

But before I did, I almost gave us thinking it just might not be the right time for me to take a sweater knitting class. Heck, I just learned to knit in May, and every one else is so much better than me, and blah, blah, blah. That is when HP showed me the Rowan pattern and I knew she wanted me to continue to take the class and to stop feeling sorry for myself and being a drama queen!!!

Anyway, the teacher's name is Lisa Mason and she is very patient and knowledgable and fun. I'm learning a lot from her and the other ladies in the class. I am the least experienced knitter in the class though. But that is okay!!! It is fun. The back is almost halfway done.
