I have been searching for a hobby that I could enjoy at night and would help me stop my night time eating habits and get me out of the house for a little social time during the summer break. I already knew how to knit a little, but today was my first class at a beautiful store I didn't know existed. There were three other ladies who were there along with the instructor. The store has many beautiful yarns to select from and our group will meet every Thursday from 1:30 - 3:30. We can bring any project and get individualized instruction. I had a wonderful time learning about the other ladies and seeing their unique projects. We talked about so many subjects and the time flew. So I signed up for a month of classes and have 3 projects, all small and easy but with beautiful yarn that inspires me to create.
Unlike the scrapbook store, there were no treats to tempt me! Now I only have one problem, spending too much on yarn and the cost of the class. It is better than spending money on the wine tasting parties and sometimes leaving with wine for home. I enjoyed the conversation and getting together with some teaching friends, but I wasn't able to handle the temptation.
I doubt that I can count the knitting as fitness minutes, so I really need to get in my exercise tonight before I begin.
