Knitting class

I know I mentioned it, but I haven't had a chance to talk about my knitting class. On Saturday, after I went to the doctor, I went to the place where the class is being taught to pick out a pattern and supplies. The lady that is teaching the class is very sweet and very fragile. She is a little old lady, just the way you picture little old ladies who knit. :-)

Anyway, after talking for a little bit about my previous knitting experience, she suggested a baby sweater. I was very hesitant at first, basically because babies are a very sensitive subject for me. Since I really didn't want to share with a complete stranger the whole, 'oh well, I had oc and can't have children and don't think I could stand to learn to knit on a baby sweater since I'll never have one' saga, I decided to just do it. (Think, Nike) A dear friend of mine had a baby girl two weeks ago and I can give the sweater to her or I can save it for my brother's children. Maybe working on the sweater and having to 'think baby' for eight weeks will help me move on from the grieving thing that I just can't seem to let go of.

So, where was I... Oh, yeah, for my first knitting class, I'm knitting a baby sweater. The yarn I picked is, I think, just beautiful. I also had to get new needles in the right size. If you click on the picture you can get a closer look at the sweater. I'm thinking after I accomplish the sweater, I may feel brave enough to try the hat. It looks really cute too.

Only six days left until my knitting class begins! I'm so excited! Wish me luck!

Gorgeous yarn, it even LOOKS soft. Have fun at your class, the shop owner sounds precious! Again, I'm impressed with your bravery, you are really inspiring.
