Lucky Knitter

As I wrote about yesterday, I’m short on wool that I need to finish my pattern.
I called to another local yarn store to find….THEY HAVE 20 BALLS OF WHAT I NEED! YIPPEE!

After everything that has gone wrong this week, I think I am entitled to something nice.The only downside is that this store closes at 6pm tonight, and I most likely won’t make it there before then. I am hoping I can pick it up tomorrow morning, before heading into work.

Huge sigh of relief.

This is a story of the girl who knits

Slowly but surely, I will knit.

I don’t expect to be perfect, nor do I expect this to be my life’s work, but I do want to learn what I’m doing.

My knitting so far…

  • I’ve learned to cast on with one needle
  • I’ve learned to cast on with two needles
  • I’ve learned to knit
  • I’ve learned to purl
  • I’ve learned stocking stitch
  • I’ve learned moss (seed) stitch
  • I’ve learned knit 2 purl 2
  • I’ve learned to cast off

So, I’m on my way. But like any new knitter, there are things I find intimidating. I am terribly afraid of yarn overs (yo) and sl (slip stitch). I have yet to attempt cable knit, though that doesn’t scare me- I just haven’t taken on a cable knit project yet.
As I comb through web tutorials and projects on ravelry, I find new things every day, and in a world where so much is chaotic, I am finding pleasure in the repetitive nature of knit purl knit purl knit purl.
