I'm learning to knit

Sometimes I like to think of myself as being more like the Proverbs 31 model of a noble character by keeping my hands busy on sewing and knitting.  But let's be honest, I don't think that the Proverbs 31 woman was knitting cable knit clutch for herself while she was sitting on the couch watching DVDs of 24.  No, I am a far cry from the Proverbs 31 woman.  My house will testify.  I've been making myself so tired by playing outside in the dirt that I come in and want to sit.  Knitting is a great sitting craft.

But don't expect me to make a blanket or scarf.  I don't have enough patience to make something like that.  I hope this will be done within a week.  Otherwise it will go into a bag to be forgotten about like many other yarned things I've begun but never finished.

If you're thinking of sitting...I mean knitting, I recommend these videos that helped me lots:

Cable Knit Stitch 

Once I've completed my clutch, I'll share the pattern with you.
