Whew! I've been working my tail off the past couple of days.
A couple of nights ago I checked into a hotel for the night. As I have stayed there many times before the desk clerk knew my truck when I pulled in and had my registration filled out for me by the time I got to the desk. Nice lady.
As I signed the card she noticed my impromptu knitting bag and as she hadn't seen me carrying it in the past she asked about it. I told her that I had taken up knitting (or at least trying to learn) and she said that she had tried to learn but just couldn't do it.
I pulled out the scarf I've been working on, which is now approaching 4 feet in length, and she seemed genuinely impressed. I told her that she could learn to knit and all she needed to do was spend some time practicing or maybe take a class.
I guess seeing that a big, hairy old truck driver could do it inspired her because she said that she was going to dig out her stuff and try it again.
It kinda made me feel good to know that I have been more or less teaching myself to do something (it's how I learn best) that some others have found very difficult to learn. I hope she does take a class or something and learns to knit. It would give her something to do during those slow times at the hotel desk.
