Here it is the first of December and I haven’t finished my knitting project from last month. Last night, as I was adding a couple more inches to my project and mentally beating myself up for not having completed it, I realized I was being too harsh with myself. After all, my Someday for November was to learn to knit and there I was knitting! The project I’m working on is from a starter kit I purchased at least five years ago. It’s been sitting in the closet ever since waiting for me to get around to learning to knit. Well, it’s not in the closet anymore; it’s sitting beside my chair with several inches completed. Sure, I have a lot to learn about other stitches, adding and decreasing (I’m not even sure that’s the right terminology), but the point is – I’m knitting! Getting started does count!

Every journey begins with the first stitch…
I learned how to crochet last February and haven’t really finished it. But at least I did start and know that I can pick it up anytime if i want to. So that felt good too.
