Knit One, Purl ? February 28, 2010

Filed under: On Pins & Needles! — Mac @ 12:10 AM

Guess what else I did last week? That’s right, I (re)learned how to knit! Woo-Hoo!!
Years ago I learned how to knit, but it had been so very long since I had pulled out the yarn & needles that I couldn’t remember how. Let me tell ya it’s not like riding a bike. Thankfully, my friend Kelley (aka my quilting buddy) is an excellent knitter! She is also now my knitting teacher/mentor. What a gal! She had me casting on and off in no time.
For now I’m perfecting my “knit” stitch (do we knitters call them stitches?). Here’s the scarf I was able to finally finish after it had been rolled up in ball for
who-knows-how-long….the scarf knows, but I’m afraid to ask it.

Here’s a picture of the scarf I’m working on now. Boy, I’m going to be really good at that Knit stitch when I’m done!

I’ll have to start workin’ on that Purl stitch soon.
