Well can’t believe it’s 2013, my resolution is the same as last year, which shows that I never did it in 2012, but I am determined to succeed this year. I want to start a knitting group here in lovely Fraserburgh. I find it sad that I have no one to share my passion for knitting, my love for all things wooly, someone that appreciates the work that can be put into a pair of gloves, when people are used to buying their nice clothing items they just don’t see the time, effort and love that goes into producing something made by you. I think that is one of the reasons that I am the selfish knitter, when you realise that the love you put into making a beautiful item just isn’t appreciated by the receiver. It’s not that they aren’t happy with the gift, I just have the suspicion that they have no idea the work and hours that went into the gift. Maybe this is my excuse for only knitting for myself, this is very possible.
I had better get into gear for this group, What day? Where? Time? Oh the questions, what to do, I do worry that I’m not outgoing enough to start this group, I do struggle when I meet new people but we all have to step out of our comfort zone and go for things. This is probably why I never did it last year, well I know that it’s the reason. I need a kick in the backside here and I really have to go for it!
Aside from worrying about the knitting group I am putting aside my own projects to knit a layette for my niece, she is having a baby so I thought I would give her a hand made gift, I do hope she appreciates it.
