Life is a succession of lessons which must be lived to be understood.

Ralph Waldo Emerson


The Conduct of Life

I am not a bottom-less pit of knowledge when it comes to computers, but I get by. While trying to upload my free knitting pattern to my blog (see the side bar My Free Patterns) I realized that whenever I try to expand my horizons there are lessons (learning) that must take place first. Usually I do not forsee these “lessons”. I get an idea and then I want to get on with it only to realize that I am missing pieces of knowledge that are necessary completion. I’m not quite as bad as jumping into the deep end of the ocean only to surface and say, “Excuse me, how does that swimming thing go again?” But I am bad.

What usually happens is the idea takes longer (forever it seems, sometimes) to come into being while I search here and there, then back to here again for the knowledge I need to get the thing completed. And today it seemed to take me forever to simply find the knowledge (information) I needed to upload the pattern pdf and create a link to it.  Yes, “life is a succession of lessons”, the learning of which goes right out of my head, sometimes. I know the next time I want to upload I’ll have to go through all the knowledge gathering again.

The free pattern is called Hearts Abound Baby Socks. They are sized 6 to 12 months old. I have a hat pattern that goes with them, Hearts Abound Baby Hat,  and that is in my Etsy store. The link to my store is also on the side bar. I hope you enjoy the socks pattern.
