This week I started to learn about increasing and decreasing using YO and K2Tog. The YO was pretty straightforward, but the K2Tog was swift to punish me for knitting too tightly.
O.k. one more try. I started this scarf on 1/9.
The scarf picture is the wrong format...so let's move on to the baby blanket I started on 1/23 for my new grandson.
My wife had warned me that many knitters had multiple projects they were working on at the same time and a fair collection of UFOs. How could this happen?
My first project is evolving. After learning the purl stitch, my garter stitch scarf has begun to evolve. The garter stitch transitions to a band of seed stitch, then moss stitch.
This purling stuff has been frustrating. I kept feeling like I was all thumbs. Then last night (about 4 a.m.) I slowed way down and took it step-by-step.
Today, my wife introduced me to the purl stitch......AAAAAAARGH!
