So I thought today I'd finally get started on that sock KAL I joined. We are knitting two socks at the same time on one circular needle using the magic loop method with this basic pattern. Now I didn't think I knew the magic loop method but I DO, so I got excited thinking I can DO this. So I bought the yarn and the new needles today at the LYS and I was READYDoesn't it look great? Yeah, it sat just like that on my bed all afternoon I was afraid to touch it and tangle it all up. But I finally decided it's now or never. I need to step out and go with the new, because the old just isn't fun anymore.
So far this is what I've accomplished...
HELP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I am so stuck and confused. I got the cast on OK, and started the ribbing on the first half of sock one and then I was LOST. Now what? Who knows, maybe I need to frog it and start over or just start something else? Anyone live close enough to Upstate NY that wants to help me, please call, I'm in the book, under dazed and confused, LOL.
Today I think I'll just ease my inferiority complex by asking have you ever stepped out of your comfort zone to try something new and failed on your first try? It doesn't have to be knitting related, it could be cooking, or writing, or a sport whatever... Did you go back and try again? Tell me about your experience in the commebt section so I can draw from your successes and maybe keep trying. Any comment counts and gets you an entry for today.
OH and the caption I had in my mind for yesterday's tangled dog was... "Well it's your fault, you're the one who named me SWIFT."
So today I had my admissions interview at Bryant & Stratton College. I have decided after almost 30 years to finally go to college and get a degree.One day I may once again wear one of these. Better than one of these There are so many things out there to be learned but I have decided I want to go into a medical field for my new career. I am going to start out with Medical Administrative Assistant and then finish off with the actual Medical Assistant program. These will set me up to work in the home doing billing/coding/transcripting or out of the home in a DR office or hospital doing things like drawing blood and EKG's and monotiring, assisting, running units and offices etc. It's a HUGE growing field and I can easily support myself with either of these degree programs. Classes would start September 9th. I filled out the FAFSA forms on line today so we shall see if I can swing the cost. There are a lot of changes happening in my life right now and this is just the beginning.
I have been reading the April book for the WhoDuKnit group, it's called "The Husband" by Dean Koontz. I have never read any of his books, but I have to tell you I was hooked right on page ONE. The ironic thing is that I am reading a book about a husband that loves his wife more than anything, while this crazieness is going on all around me. Sometimes God's sense of humor is way over my head.
Well I think that's enough for today. I need to go to bed soon and dream about knitting socks and least in my dreams I actually knit them. Have a great night and sweet dreams.
