September - learning

Sarah wants us to look at 'learning something new'.
Faye has written about taking up knitting. Something I've done since before school days. However, there's always something new to learn even for an 'old hand' like me. A friend has introduced me to knitting for charity.
We have a large teaching hospital which includes a specialist eye hospital (St. Paul's). Diabetic retinopathy causes blindness as a result of diabetes.
Add the above and you get...
Me knitting for charity!

As for learning something new?
I am studying with the Open University, and soon I'll face a new challenge. Until now I've done courses at levels 1 and 2.
Now it's time to move up to level 3. 'The environmental web' an online course.

What a wonderful cause, keep on learning girl, it keeps the cobwebs out of your brain! My passion to learn now is my camera and photography.

Thank you Karen, being level 3 the new course is a bit daunting, but it'll occupy the grey cells LOL

Hi Jan
Hope you are enjoying photography, especially with your new camera. There are some lovely photos on your blog!

A lot of knitters and would-be knitters out there! I prefer crocheting myself but have knit a time or two in my lifetime. What a terrific thing that you are doing with your talent!

joangee said...

Thank you Sandy! I like crochet too, there are fewer stitches to drop aren't there!

Hope you enjoy your charity work.

A friend of mine knits for a charity that provides warm hats and gloves for barge workers on the Ohio River. We tease her about her "sailors". An open university sounds like a wonderful concept for adult learners who have the freedom to choose what they're interested in studying.
