I'm new to this site, so if I make a mistake please correct me.
I am part of a knit/crochet group in Harlem, New York. The members there are friendly, artistic, and sharing. Saturday I witnessed how a man and little girl were welcomed, and taught to knit.
Channel Island cast on. I love the loose sloppieness of it - reminds me if a deckled edge on rag paper. It will probably evenout a bit after blocking but I hope not too much. It did take me a while to get the hang of it but after watching the YouTube vidio about sixty times it finally clicked. It's pretty much fun once you get the hang of it.
