Well, great news! I don't have carpal tunnel syndrome! Yay!
The faster I knit, the more my hands hurt. I must say I have improved my speed, a lot!
TomH asked for a close-up of the stitches. Thanks for all the great comments.
So I went to my second group of knitters this weekend (none were male, btw), and I heard about a delicious little site called www.etsy.com.
Hey guys, just popping in for a quick word. I've set aside the knitting needles for a few days to return to a big crocheting project that's been a year in the making.
Just finished is the Shoulder Shawl with cherry leaf pattern from Victorian Lace today. The yarn is a heavy weight silk from ColourMart UK in a steely blue colour. I used 4.5mm needles.
Knitting Parties!!!! I just went to one. There was food, wine, martinis, beer, dancing. Is this how all knitting parties are?
Here's my first project that I haven't abandoned yet. I got it from a how-to book as one of the first projects when I was reading up on knitting.
