I continue to practice knitting on needles and find it very enjoyable. Especially exciting is a section in one of my books that provides directions for making different stitches – there are more than just garter and stockinette stitches! In learning new stitches, though, I encountered one that tested my patience.
My knitting journey began a few months ago with a desire to make some knitted hats. I made a number of hats and a scarf on round looms of different sizes and was pleased with them, especially the hats. But I really wanted to learn to knit with needles, too, so my learning journey began this week.
Remember the Cratchit scarf? Yeah, it was so bad that I unraveled it in its entirety. All that time – the scarf was probably about 2/3 complete – to make, but undone so quickly (sigh). After taking stock of the situation, I set about remaking it.
