Now I will explain why I have never learned to knit.
Knitting has become extremely popular in the last number of years. I do know how to knit and have even done that thing called purling sometimes. I almost knit a sweater once but when I got to the part where you knit sleeves, my knitting guru left town and never taught me the rest. I ended up with what people call a vest and eventually donated it to the thrift shop.
I have also gone to a regular Knit Knight for the last number of years. I have never once knit at this event. I usually don't do anything but eat the snack provided and sometimes sip a glass of wine. I did do a craft once.
This is the secret as to why I have never learned to knit properly. I have a KNITTING FAIRY!!!!
I have been the beneficiary of many beautiful hats, gloves, sweaters and scarves over the years. I don't have to knit I just have to wish for something knit and it appears. The KNITTING FAIRY is a gifted individual and is generally amazing.
For example, I found this picture of a scarf online recently:
I showed the KNITTING FAIRY this picture and beg, beg, begged her to make it for me. A couple months later this arrived in the mail:
Bam! Amazing!!! It's Perfect!!!!
There was also a sweater that arrived last year involving stripes and the most amazing buttons ever. It is glorious.
So I have never had to learn to knit. To be fair the KNITTING FAIRY (Moffs) has taught me many times over the years, I just have never bothered to try very hard because she's so much better at it than I am.
You should all be so lucky.
p.s. My cousin Jeff and his wife Britt and a baby yesterday. She is a bundle of teeny, weenie perfection and is named Mallory. Congratulations!
