So much to learn and laugh about: Learning lots with Robbie, my knitting teacher

Like my pottery classes, I have been attending my knitting sessions for some time now, about two and a half years.  I can tell you that I have absolutely no regrets.  I decided to take up knitting in order to build my ability to be more patient and it sure has paid off for me.

First I had Miko as a teacher and she was absolutely wonderful. But when she went on maternity leave about a year ago I got Robbie and what a fantastic teacher and person he has been to me.

Robbie has taught and continues to teach me so much, not just knitting skills but other things as well.  I have learned how to persevere in a more efficient way and how to focus more clearly.

I have learned how to not give up too easily and how to better analyze problems before coming up with suggested solutions. I have also learned how not to panic too easily.

My sense of touch has increased and gotten better.  My problem-solving skills have improved noticeably, but above all, Robbie has taught me that there are no barriers to learning.

Once you put your mind to it, the outcome will be what you desire and being vision-impaired is no excuse.  You just need to find ways to overcome.
