Giving It A Try...And Homework

The other day I was feeling a bit board, so I decided to try something new. Since I enjoy knitting and own a cable needle I decided to give cable knitting a try.

On the left is my feeble attempt and trying cable knitting. I apologize for it being a little hard to see. But I can say that it doesn't really look like a cable at all. It probably would have turned out better if I had been listening to the instruction video that I was watching instead. As of last (Friday) night I think I might have figured out what I was doing wrong with the cable part of the project. Whatever I end up doing with this I am going to keep practicing cable knitting so that I can get better and start adding it to future knitting projects.

For the Psychology class I am currently taking, we have to do reading reflections for the different chapters that we have read and each section of chapters has a different reflection to go with them. The first three chapters the reading reflection we had to do was flash cards, the reflection for the next group of chapters was multiple choice questions. For the last three chapters we are doing the reading reflections is to find five pieces of art for each chapter and describe how they fit with the chapters or to create three pieces of your own art work and fit them to the chapters.

Originally I was going to go with the first option, but once I started working on my cable knitting project I changed my mind and am now going with the second option. While I don't have a picture of it yet I already created the second piece of art for the second chapter that we have to do. Now I just have to do one last piece of art work and then write up a paragraph for each of the pieces describing how they fit with the assigned chapters.
