Just like sewing, it turns out that knitting can be addicting. Since it’s now spring, I didn’t want to knit a winter accessory like a scarf or hat that I wouldn’t be able to wear for months. Instead, I made two dishcloths.
Over winter break (being a student is great sometimes…) I learned how to knit! I first tried to learn on my own about two years ago. I had a skein of yarn, two needles, and Youtube at my disposal, but that didn’t cut it. For this attempt, I enlisted the help of my sister-in-law, who has been knitting for a few years. Just before Christmas, she spent an evening teaching me. I was hooked within ten minutes, and by the end of the week I had a scarf.
