I found a new hobby this year! I learned to knit! I first learned to knit from watching youtube videos. It was frustrating though, and it wasn’t super fun to knit all by myself. I joined the knitting exco (short for experimental college) and fell in love with knitting. I got pretty good at it too! Exco’s are student or townspeople taught classes at Oberlin that you can take for 1 credit or just for fun. There are tons of excos ranging from swing dancing to the Harry Potter exco to Brazilian jiu jitsu. Excos are great. I had so much fun knitting every Monday during class. It’s a really fun activity for watching tv or movies and keeping your hands busy.
Without further ado, here’s the hat I knitted! It’s a newborn hat that can be used in baby photography. My sister does photography, so I’m really excited for her to be able to use it in a photo shoot!
