Our knitting and crocheting for the homeless and other charities group was meeting this last weekend. Noel had brought yummy food and I was having a big plate of it. I believe it was Terry who asked, “Paula are you going to knit anything?”
The room went silent. You could hear a knitting needle drop (tee-hee). I responded, “Well I don’t want to rush into anything, isn’t this only our second meetup?” Someone else chipped in, “Um, no this is our third session….” (Unsaid by entire group: “And you haven’t started on anything yet.”)
Some sweet lady piped up “She has been taking pictures for us…..”
Okay, I admit it. The perfect tension control exhibited by the kids is a bit intimidating. I haven’t knit or crochet forever and those adorable young people are intimidating me with their perfect tension and perfect looking projects.
I did pick out these two beautiful skeins of yarn to start with. I talked to Nancy, one of our fearless leaders, about what I should start with and we decided simple 8″ squares that can later be sewn into prayer blankets. That way, until I get my tension control um controlled, I can just measure until I have 8″. Brilliant!
Now I will just let these two skeins of yarn season a bit…….. 🙂
