Saturday 13 August 2011: k2tog and then wtp ya scurvy landlubber ye!
Roughly one year ago we opened our doors to the public. For the seven months prior to that Vonnie insisted that if I was going to work in a shop that sold craft materials and ran classes that I should at least sound as thought I knew what I was talking about in at least one area. It doesn't matter how well I can bake or make a coffee if I can't talk to the customers about what we sell then I really shouldn't be there.
With that in mind you can understand the frustration my wife must have felt when she had to put me in a crochet class after I still hadn't managed to learn anything months after the shop opened.
So with today being the last official day we're open on Great Western Road I thought I'd make a special effort whilst the kids were having lunch and start to learn to knit. I can cast on like a beast but my hands are too big and clumsy for the actual knitting. If I keep this up I'll be throwing it across the room every time I make a mistake!
