    When my son, Johnny, was in sales at an appliance distributor, he got us a great deal on a high end, coffee machine. It makes espresso, cappuccino, macchiato, foaming milk, frothy, milk, hot milk, all the things.  It is smarter than I am and much more high maintenance, commanding us regularly on her cleaning and maintenance needs. 

    These functions are not hard. Nor is making a cup of cappuccino, and yet, despite having watched Bill do this literally hundreds of times, I have screwed up my coffee in every conceivable way last week while he was away. I’m too embarrassed to enumerate my mistakes, but In all fairness, how am I supposed to use a complicated coffee maker when I HAVEN’T HAD MY COFFEE YET???

    I finally managed to make my morning cup without a hitch, but then her Majesty commanded me to not only clean her milk pipework but descale her as well.  Bill and I had talked about this, and he had shown me what to do, but I still had to call to be sure because while the commands are clear, the guidance is a little sparse.

    Learn by doing

    As he talked me through the process, I realized something important.  

    I don’t learn by watching. I learn by doing

    Seeing something done is great as an overview of the process, but the nitty-gritty learning only happens when I do it myself.

    I think a lot of us are like that. 

    Do  you remember learning to knit?  I’m sure someone showed you how, and you probably eagerly reached for the knitting, only to realize that practiced hands belie the million tiny aspects of holding needles, tensioning yarn, and making the stitch.. 

    Same for sweaters

    The instructions for sweaters basically come down to this

    • Pick a pattern
    • choose the yarn
    • Decide on a size
    • Knit the pieces
    • See them together
    • Wear and enjoy!

    Such a terrible oversimplification!

    You could, of course, learn by try and error as I did with my 6+ screwed up cups of coffee. But a sweater is substantially more expensive than an espresso puck.

    Or, you could join Club Crazy for Ewe, where I guide you through the detailed steps between choose a pattern and wear and enjoy

    I’m not doing it for you, but I am there with you, teaching, leading, guiding coaching.
