My knitting machine came yesterday. I wish I was able to get really excited about it, as excited about it as I was when I ordered it. And I'm sure once I practice on it and get to really learn how to use it and get past this hellish week, I'll be excited about it.
I did read the manual that came with it and also looked through the pattern book. I want to watch the dvd before I use it too. I have a little experience with using a knitting machine from the one I borrowed last summer from my friend in my knitting group back in Texas. So the mechanics of it aren't new to me. But I really didn't get much time with that machine before we moved from Texas to Seattle, so I'll really be learning for the first time on this machine.
Luckily, my friend Angi has told me she will help me learn how to use mine. She is actually the one who inspired me to buy the machine now even though I've been wanting to buy one for awhile. She made some awesome legwarmers with her machine. And socks too!
Okay, I am really not one to talk about my personal life on the Internet and I may regret posting this in the future. I am sick and broken hearted at the moment so I can't be expected to be thinking straight right?
So here it is: Amy has been having an online affair with a woman 15 years her junior. Amy told me Sunday night that she wants to break up. And she just spent the last 4 days with said woman in Portland. And tonight, Valentines Day of all days (geez), Amy is supposed to come back after dropping of said woman at the airport to "talk".
So now you know why a knitting machine isn't really exciting to me right now.
