Up the Game

My oldest daughter Isabella ordered me a book from amazon. I received it yesterday It’s call SOCK knitting master class. I love to knit socks I have made other things but I am so a sock person. I read a article that said people who knit socks like instant gratification. I am so that person I love to shop I get a dopamine high from it and if that isn’t gratification I don’t know what is. I started knitting after I quit drinking which again is instant gratification, I get the same high from socks. I like that it dosen’t take long and when you give gift them they are truly appreciated. This book is over my head.

There I said it I started reading the patterns and instantly got intimidated. I often do this I get comfortable doing something and hesitate to learn new things. I get the feeling she is trying to tell me subtly of course I need to up my game. I plan on selling my socks in Henrietta’s Hippo and when I do this the socks need to be unique and magnificent. So here we go I am going to tackle another challenge. First I am going to buy yarn, oh no I hate buying yarn (just kidding) and then I am going to watch the dvd that came with the book and start knitting. I really am so excited it time to start learning something new.Baloo is giving me moral support. He can’t knit ( he dosen’t have any thumbs ) but he lays at my feet and gives me encouragement. I have been NOMINATED!!!!          urbancurator actually nominated me. I am so thrilled there are bloggers out there that like my blog.
