Misty (a new Deaf friend of mine) has been staying with me for a few days and she wanted to learn how to knit. I have two videos and several books and took that class last summer...so I dug out the washcloth my friend Becky helped me start and did some ripping and knitting and ripping and knitting (repeat as many times as your imagination allows) until I finally got it figure out (and a call to Becky!) but it turned out alright. I think I went a few rows too far on the end so it isn't as square as it could be, but I am afraid to rip it out and make it worse. So I am satisfied with that one and we will use it!
I then practiced the purl stitch again (and so is Misty) for a bit and tried doing a pattern that is 5 knit, 5 purl all up the row. It was fun to do and I had the hang of it, but I think I need to practice more purling and visually knowing the difference in the stitches! So I decided to go back to this pattern and started a second one...hopefully I will improve on the second one! Meanwhile Misty is just knitting (or purling) and ripping out regularly! We also put on the movie Dune which I have never seen (and it is several hours long) and so have been semi entertained while we knit. Never did make it to the sewing room today, but maybe tomorrow!
