Skill +1

leave a comment »


We all have skill sets that are useful to some degree. Hobbies, passions, and interests form skills. We learn to appreciate the form, learn it, copy it, and adopt it. In video games, RPGs (role playing games) are intertwined with gaining skills, learning and mastering them. In other words, “leveling up” is a coined phrased in determining how well your character is doing in a game. When the games are turned off though, we return to a world that has a broader range of skills to acquire, learn, and eventually master.

For me, I have acquired a skill and leveled up +1. Knitting is something that seemed very hard to learn. Two needle sticks and some yarn, a lot of time, and then, poof! a sweater or scarf is made. Well, that now seems within reach.

With a couple of lessons under my belt, I have learned the “continental” style of purling and knitting. This skill will allow me to make things independently. And if there were ever a nuclear explosion, and the huge industry of shirt/sweater making crumbles to dust, I will be able to take some yarn (that hopefully made it through the firestorm) and create a nice knitted outfit for my Mad Max‘esque ensemble.

Hazah folks!

follow me.
