And so it begins.
As my loyal readers probably recall from my previous post on the matter, my friend Catherine and I decided we wanted to learn to knit (prior to my departing the US) since us ladies-of-leisure need hobbies such as knitting to fit into the ladies-of-leisure clique. So we went straight to the Knit Master. The Mr. Miyagi of knitting, if you will. Otherwise know as Catherine's mum.
