"Your too Loose."
"But I can't get it tighter......." I said holding the
chopsticks, I mean needles in my hands with a ball of yarn all over the place.
"Yes you can, it comes with practice but it must be tighter," the teacher lady said.
"But if its tighter I can't get the
chopsticks, I mean needles, to get in that little flippin hole!!!" I thought to myself.
Looking over my shoulder, she asked, "Are you knitting or purling now?"
"Hell, if I know!" I thought but instead said, "I am knitting now, right?"
"Excellent! See your getting it," she announced with a pat on my shoulder.
So that was my first knitting class! I had the biggest headache by the end of 2 hours from concentrating so hard and look at how hard I worked in the above picture!! Okay, well I have 2 samples that size but still it was a lot of work!
I finally signed up to take a knitting class.......actually at JoAnn Fabrics. I know, I have sheep, bags of wool and roving, Cotswold yarn coming at the end of January and I do not know how to knit. But after my first class, I am on my way to being a knitting crazy woman! I am signing up for more classes and actually, the teacher was quite nice and patient and there was only me and another lady in the class so I got lots of attention;) Now the whole problem with knitting, is forcing myself to just sit down and knit. I know its something I will enjoy, its just finding the time................
So, the teacher said I have to come with my first "project" in mind for the next class in September........................I have the perfect project!
No problem........okay maybe its a bit ambitious;)
How about this merino hand-knit sweater? Don't you just love those pom-poms?
Okay, I know just start with a simple scarf.
Its gonna be a loose scarf, not a tight one.
I hate tight things.
I like it loose.
Ex-husband said I was............ opps, too much information.
Mom or Dad might be reading.
Now what color should my loose scarf be????
