Happy Knitaversary to Me!

It was around this time last year that my neighbor and her 90+ year old mother taught me the knit stitch.  I just finished my third scarf for a friend who will be visiting next week ( I am slow).  Tonight I sat down with some yarn and a book and taught myself the purl stitch.  Yes, I only knew the knit stitch but it was enough for me at the time. Like learning the knit stitch my arms are sore from new learning but I know this will pass.  While I was able to figure the stitch out I am not sure how I should be holding the yarn so that it flows.  Think I will call on my neighbor again for some advice.  Afterall, she is 70ish and has been knitting a long time.

Knitted Scarf

This is a scarf I made in 1997, I also knitted a sweater with the matching colors.  It was a very beautiful sweater. Very Heavy. It had all kinds of yarn, from Icelandic Wool, to some mohair to acrycic.  I may get motivated and make some sweaters, I want to buy those  detachable circular needles.  Does anyone has them, the ones you change the tips, How will you rate them.
