    Experience is the name everyone gives to his mistakes.
    -Oscar Wilde

    One of these photos is all that is right about knitting in San Diego. The other is all that is wrong about knitting in San Diego. (And you'd better get this one right . . .)

    Here are some of the lovely friendly knitters of San Diego:Dis from A Little Loopy and Knitzalot from The Purly Gate and some of their blogless friends were among the first to welcome me to the knitting fun in San Diego. There are knitting groups - yes, plural - on a very regular basis. They are fun people. They knit. How much more perfect could it be?

    Well, I could be able to keep my eyes open well enough not to make mistakes like this: Hard to see with the flash, I know, but do you see how I seemed the completely wrong part to the completely wrong part? I want to wear this cool tank for MyNewCaliforniaLifestyle . . . but that lifestyle is tiring!

    I love getting together with knitting friends, but it does turn the mind to jello somehow, and I've learned to take only totally mindless knitting to meetings.

    I'm so glad you were able to make it! And tired? After only 80 hours of work in a week? Hmmm, I never would have guessed ;-)

    Chalk it up to more "experience!" It still looks lovely, and I can't wait to see the finished product.

    Knitting groups! How fun. And experience is all about mistakes. Hopefully your new lifestyle will get less tiring as you settle in.

    Hmmmm. Maybe you should leave the seaming until you've had a decent night's sleep. ;-)
    Then again, I have trouble doing seams even when I'm well-rested.

    This makes me want to move to a completely new place and meet a completely new group of knitters! Sounds fun!

    There's something wrong with me -- I don't really see what wrong thing was seamed to another wrong thing. Maybe it's too close up? I'm going to go with that rather than the alternative, that I have failed to develop a competent understanding of knitting technique and construction.

    I'm missing all the fun, I see! I will make it down to SD one of these days so we can meet in person, too. :)

    Poor Theresa. :( I hope your residency isn't pushing you too hard. You need time for sleep and knitting!

    Multiple knitting groups, how great! Yeah, whenever I knit with people I have to take the mindless stuff.
