Comments: MY JOBS

Sarah - I am really interested in learning to knit - I even bought a book. I just need to take a class I think. I wish I lived near you - I'd def take your class at Michaels. My MIL knits, but whenever we're together, it doesnt seem like there is any time for instruction. Any pointers in getting started?

Keri -- If you live near a Michael's anywhere, maybe they also offer a class? If not, I think the videos at KnittingHelp.com are really great. You can pause and back up as often as you need to see the actions. I have used that website many times to learn new techniques. Maybe that can help? I think learning from a book is hard, so I like the online videos.

Talk about doing what you love, that is awesome. I'm so happy you've been able to land not one, but two jobs that involve things you are passionate about.

....and might I add KnittingHelp.com is VERY useful.

You lucky girl! Do you get an employee discount too? Gravy!

Back in my younger wilder days, I had to do community service as part of a DUI. They didn't need anyone right then at the senior home, so they sent me to the library. Talk about a kid in a candy shop. They loved me there: I knew my alphabet, AND the Dewey Decimal System! LOL
