I attended my second knit and stitch session on Tuesday and I am pleased to say I didn't have to "stay behind" class to have Angie re-do my work. Would you believe I managed to drop a stitch and decided in my wisdom to pull out the row and then put all the stitches back on backwards...........I know who knew there was a right way and wrong way to put on stitches????
I have now knit one full ball of yarn in dark gray and have started on the light gray ball:
I'll let you into a little secret, I have "lost" a stitch somewhere as I now have 124 stitches instead of 125........oops. I bought some stitch markers and boy do they make things a lot easier I have discovered.
"Y" is knitting with some fancy dancy yarn, and I think she mentioned a shawl or something? She is the best knitter ever and also weaves, crochets. She also has the funkiest hair ever.
"J" was starting on a pair of socks. She is fun and was telling us a story about a friend of a friend who has a fish called "DWAYNE," as when he dies that's where he is going...........down the dwayne!! No matter how many times I hear that I laugh.
Then there is "A" an expert knitter and so quiet, and such a good help when I make a mistake; which believe me is often! She is knitting a sweater using a yarn with YAK wool in it. It's super soft:
Finally there was Angie our beloved leader. Patience of a saint; well she has to have dealing with me. She was knitting a tank top, but it wasn't going as planned, so she pulled it all out and started again. Me, I would have cried and had a melt down if that had happened to me, but Angie took it all in her stride. That is why she is the one in charge!!!
If you want to learn more about The Knitting Basket, Angie has a Facebook page/site, Google it under The Knitting Basket, Alliston, Ontario.
Can't wait until next Tuesday as it is The Knitting Basket's 2nd birthday and "Y's" birthday as well!!
