May for Me Practice SHOULD make Perfect

  So today was suppose to be Jorge's day but we have a new schedule for our May for Me..
Monday: Jorge
Tuesday: Evielynne
Wednesday: Jorge
Thursday: Evielynne
Friday: Fun Day
Saturday: Follow-up for the week
Sunday: Church Words

So with it being Thursday I decided to take on Knitting... A simple pattern from Buddy Bears to Knit.

I started this at 11am and worked up until about an hour ago and I am sorry to report I need a lot of practice... A LOT!! The poor things is just NOT CUTE... I was going to give my Bear to JuneBug my cat but then decided that I am going to attach a key ring to and put it on my backpack. Why Not?

I should say something positive about today's project. I have never casted on after or added stitches to a working progress - So I rock at that now. I have never binded off with out using crochet hook and I can now bind off. So there you go I succeeded in my quest to learn something new!! Job well done and my pat on back is now done....

Now on with the giggles....

Jorge and I where chatting up a storm today and I had said "you know this May for Me is so good for us because it's allows me to challenge myself and put aside my fears. It forces me to put a time frame and do the best that I can on my chosen project" And it's working sort of lol... Will I make another? Sure only this time I will use a bigger needle - this was done on sports yarn and using a size 4 needles - I have never worked on a project with small needles before.
