Does life imitate Chinesepod?
I never imagined that I would actully use the vocabulary from the "Knitting a Scarf" leeson. However, one of my Chinese friends in Hong Kong invited me to a knitting lesson today because the teacher only speaks Mandarin and no English. So she figured it was a good opportunity for me to be able to practice my conversation skills. So I brought the PDF along and learned a whole lot of new words like di1zhen1 (knit), gao1zhen1 (pearl), qi3zhen1 (cast-on), song1 (loose), jin3 (tight), hua1zhen1 (slipstitch). I don't know which was worse, my knitting or my speaking, but I had a great time practicing both. Auntie Sue would be so proud of me today!
