After what seemed like a long time, knitting is fun again. May be because I've finished all my commitments for other people and I could cast on for myself...more on that later.

I have been spinning quite a bit. I'm finding that is relaxing me more than the knitting at the moment. We have had a lot of doctor appointments in the last month between my mom, youngest daughter, and yes our pug Gadget. spinning has helped take the edge out of monitoring every ones meds and appointments.
I realize the knitting content has been low lately, I will try to kick it into gear, after all the holiday's are fast approaching...soon I'll have my countdown and projects listed...why not know? Pshaw...there is SOOO much time between now and then that there is no challenge....ya that is my story and I'm sticking to it.
OH I did do something exciting! I took a knitting class. This is only my third knitting class period. I was able to get into a Lucy Neatby Ambidextrous Knitting class. She is an amazing teacher. I had a wonderful afternoon and feel like I can now neatly do stranded knitting with a different yarn in each hand. She was encouraging and empowering. If you can take a class from her, don't hesitate, you will enjoy it and learn. And above all? It was FUN!
