Today was the first day of knitting. I really love knitting, but I admit that I've lost touch with it for quite a while. Xavier Brisoux is our instructor. He is very skilled in partial knitting, another name for short rowing. It’s actually really cool to see because knitting can create so much volume. It was also really nice learning about the different ways to protect your designs. I think that schools should teach students how to protect their designs, and ideas. It would really be helpful for even though school is for the future and professional works.
I went out to eat with my Uncle Yo and my friends at a restaurant, Canteen Bus, not too far from my apartment. It was a more American-style dining, and the portions were really big. I had fun though. I got to talk to my uncle about his life in France as a Hmong person, his education, what he likes to do during his free time, and just to get to know him better. The atmosphere of the restaurant was perfect for conversation, and fun. My dinner was superb. I had salad, steak fries, and steak kebab with a gravy sauce.
Tonight was a great night.
