Daily Diary: It’s Good To Have Friends With Hobbies

kids knitting

My daughter has been begging me to learn how to crochet and knit. I told her she was barking up the wrong tree. I just don’t have it in me. I actually watched about 5 different “beginner” YouTube videos in an attempt to get Natalie started.

Epic FAIL.

I couldn’t even get the KNOT started. WHAT? Impossible.

Our friends have a daughter who is an avid knitter and we had them over yesterday to give both of us a mini-lesson. They were SO CUTE!! Of course, I spent most of the afternoon and evening with the mom. I missed the information! But my daughter kept coming out with her new creations.

I am going to look for some sort of after-school or weekend program in the neighborhood. I think it’s a wonderful skill to know, right?

I already put in my order – a scarf for the winter! I will let you know how it goes.

Do you crochet or knit? Do you have any tips?? Books? Videos? Would love any advice!

    As crazy as it sounds, I learned to knit with the Klutz series book on how to knit and it actually turned me into a master knitter. When I haven’t done it in a while, I refer back to that book to remind me how to get started. I highly recommend it!
