Co 58, K1, P1
Well, well.... lil ol Sheila has been busy this week... learning how to knit... that's right... the K 2 T. Let me tell you it wasn't easy, I spent 4 hours learning how to knit from the Knitting Made Easy CD-Rom. I believe the first hour was spent learning how to hold the needles... my fingers were like what the dickens are you doing.....lol. Finally got the hang of holding the needles and then on to casting on, which was easy... I had attended a stitch n' bitch a while ago... and picked that up easy. Now the challenge was knitting... man o' man... it was a challenge learning how to pierce a loop and yo and carry it over to the right needle.... I darn near pierce my belly button trying to stabilize the needles.... lol. Let me not forget the purl... by the time I got that down the tips of my index fingers were sore. But I wasn't daunted... I kept right at it. I continued practicing while commuting to work and at one point I just knew I was going to poke someone on the train... but that didn't stop me... matter of fact... when I ride the train I favor the two seaters and I'm sure I looked dangerous while knitting and by the third day... I had the two seats to myself...lol. This week was really a learning experience for me... and this is what I managed to get on my needles... Well back to practicing.
