Knitting

I’m learning how to knit!!

As I’m diving deeper and deeper into this whole WWII reenactment stuff, the more I’m realizing I need to learn how to knit. I’ve found so many amazing 40’s patterns on sites like Fabulous Forties Fashions, and haven’t found ANY suitable pre-made sweaters or knitwear items from that time period. So if you want something done right… you know what they say. Plus, every time I look at Lauren’s blog she’s practically rubbing it in my face that she’s cooler than me because she knits amazing things 😉 😉

Obviously I’m not going to be knitting my own long underwear anytime soon, but Knit Lab for Beginners promises to teach me everything I need to know to get started. I’ve been terrified of knitting up until this point, but with a 100% money back guarantee and 50% off the original class price, I’m not going to sit around and be afraid of yarn any longer!! Haha!

As I work through the class, I’ll be sure to share my progress and my input. Craftsy has never let me down with any of their classes before, but I am worried that I’ll get frustrated with myself and not want to stick with it. I know practice makes perfect, and everything takes time to learn, but sewing has always come pretty easy for me and I definitely love that! If it aint broke don’t try something new, right? Hahah I know that’s a terrible outlook to have! I’m going to try it! Plus, with the amount of sweaters I wear, I’d be really stupid not to learn to make my own.

Wish me luck 😉

ALL Craftsy classes are up to 75% off until the 24th, AND they’ve added a lot more free classes to the library. Definitely take advantage of the free classes if nothing else! I know I did. Even the ones I might not ever use like quilting and jewelry making. Because come on, THEY’RE FREE!
