When I say I’m a slow learner, I mean it. Who knew that you didn’t just buy knitting needles because you liked how they looked? Not me! I was looking at my idiot knitting book last night and I finally read the very beginning! (And I bitch about Mike not following directions) Yarn comes with warning labels and advisories about what size needles to use. Well, hell, I could have knitted a tent by now had I known this! Knitting – at least the basic stuff – is not that hard if you are using the right needles. I was like Short-Bus-Speed-Racer tonight with my new needles (in the right size).
Now I have the stitches, I need to learn how to make them into things. Stay tuned.
