Knitting, you say?

Here I am, sitting at my computer desk, knitting of all things. Knitting. But that doesn't make me feel strange. It's listening to Ozzy Osbourne and Metallica while I'm knitting that makes me feel strange.

For those who don't know, a knitting bee was held at the church last night to make scarves for the homeless. I'm sorry, I mean residentially challenged. That's much more politically correct. It's been a while since I tried knitting last, probably about eight months. I actually learned how to 'cast on' this time. It was something I had tried to learn before, but I forgot how to do it after every stitch I started. At the time, it had just been easier for someone else to start it for me.

Of course, we all make mistakes, and I'm no exception, if not a prime example. I drop stitches, gain stitches, some of my stitches are too tight, and some of them are too loose. But it's only my first project, and I'm content with my progress.

As the sweater says, "Cool kids knit." Of course there's also the less often seen "It's hip to knit."

mmm knitting. It would be so amazing to be able to knit clothes like that. Theres, a sweater, and a scarf, and some mittens... You wouldn't have to buy those clothes ever again! Just lots and lots of yarn stuffs...

So basically what you are saying Werner is that you would wear yarn for the rest of your life?
