I’ve been following the Yarn Along through Small Things for a few weeks now. I have a keen interest in knitting and crocheting, but haven’t had any real opportunity to actually learn. I can finally post something I’m actually knitting!
With a new baby, I have discovered that having hobbies is a challenge! In order to have a hobby, one must actually devote some time to said hobby, which isn’t always the easiest thing to do when it is so much easier to give all my attention to my family and household. Josh and I decided that we each need “me” time, so every 2 weeks or so I get to take 2-3 uninterrupted hours to do whatever I want to! I decided to take a knitting class at a super cute knitting store in downtown Halifax called The Loop.
We stopped in a couple of weeks ago and they had all of these dreamy yarns ❤ I was so delighted to see a class list with knitting AND crochet!
My heart is just exploding with daydreaming about all the beautiful, cozy things I can knit with my new found skills.
It’s a little bittersweet though. For as long as I can remember, my grandmother tried to teach me how to knit. I was a tomboy when I was younger, so I had absolutely no interest in the things she longed to share with me.
By the time I was old enough to appreciate what she was trying to hand down to me, her eye sight and health had deteriorated too much to show me. So everything I make now is in memory of her.
I’ve discovered that the library carries lots of cute books for knitting. Guys, I am so excited!
