Despite all of that, I decided to start knitting. I know nothing about knitting, sewing, crocheting..anything outside of safety pinning a bra strap is completely unheard of for me. I admit I'm terribly intimidated by the knitting/hand-crafted world. I am not Martha Stewart-y, nor am I ironically hip enough to be one of those "stitch and bitchers." But I'm doing it anyway.

My friend Big Sis started knitting regularly with her 20-something niece and teenage daughter and invited me over, despite my protests that I know nothing about anything to do with knitting. She gave me the old, "If I can do it, so can you" argument and I had to admit that she had a point. A single mom with two kids, working two jobs while finishing her PhD. Talk about having plenty on your plate. But she's doing it, getting better at it, and loving it.

Since I first picked up the needles one week ago, I've thought of nothing else. I bought the Stitch and Bitch book, took a trip to the popular, locally-owned knitting store and had the owner walk me through what I needed (when she asked what kind of knitter I was to gauge what size needle to start with, I responded, "Consider me an uncoordinated one.").
