On learning

I'm sure I was just as bad at knitting when I first started, though it seems impossible that anyone could be this bad at anything.

The fiber is corriedale, which looked lovely in the bag, lovely sitting my lap, and lovely allllllll the way up until I actually started spinning it, at which point I realized it looked like I was spinning my own hair.

My homework it to keep trying to make my bag of fiber look like yarn, and then next week, we tackle plying, which I'm assured will really improve the look of this mess. I sure hope so.

(I would also like to note for the record that when I got to Fibre Space, I only purchased supplies for the class. No other yarn. No books. No patterns. No gadgets or tools. How strong am I?)

(What? Madelinetosh Magnolia Society Yarn Club? I have no idea what you're talking about . . .)

Baby steps! And great self control on just coming out with class supplies. I'd have had to wear blinders!
