Knitting is Hard.
Last night I attended a knitting class at a craft store. I discovered, very quickly, that this particular craft store does not provide the ideal environment for learning. The same easy listening music that is played throughout the store is also played, at a rather high volume, in the "class room." Unbeknownst to me, this class was comprised of a mix of beginning and intermediate knitters. The more experienced students all knew each other and were very very chatty. I had imagined, foolishly, that I would come away from this two hour session knowing how to knit. But all I have is green scarf the size of a coaster.
