Adventure Friday with my sister and daughter - yay! But how to manage my 4 hours of needling? Ha! This is why I knit.
Emily drove and I got in over 2 hours of knitting. I like just knitting away, no fancy patterns, nothing to count, just establishing the muscle memory of knitting. It was one of my new projects after I retired - I started knitting lessons, golf lessons and Longarm machine quilting class. These are my favorite comments from my classes.
Golf instructor to another student: Wow! Really good, you've obviously golfed before.
Golf instructor to me: Well....that was close.
Knitting teacher to all the other students: Great job, you're making wonderful progress, beautiful!
Knitting teacher to me: That's not knitting.
Longarm teacher to other students: Great progress! You've got talent! Nice job!
Longarm teacher to me: Hmmm, let's try that again.
I am finally improving after a year of practice on everything but the golf. We aren't going to talk about the golf, this is a NEEDLING blog after all. No such problems on Adventure Fridays - I can knit and go to fun restaurants and sample new dishes. Finish with a new bakery and head home to sewing. Yes!
Imaginary Adventure Friday/eating teacher to me: Perfect! I can tell you are a professional.
Me: Thanks! (smothering burp)
