Would you believe I have been knitting now for nearly two years? I am not an expert knitter, still haven't knit a pair of socks but I am a bit more confident than I was when I first started.
I still go to a sit and knit not every week, but a lot of the time and the last time I was there, a lady had brought in a pile of books that she didn't want and asked Angie to sell them and donate the money to charity. So I had a look through them and picked out a couple including the one below, you can read more about the book here (it's an Amazon link).
I did have a few issues, so turned to Angie for guidance, and this is where I learned something new and something so simple that you wonder why I didn't think of that.The pattern involves purling two stitches together and then a yarn over. I was getting mixed up with all of that, so Angie suggested I put in stitch markers everytime I did a pattern repeat so I could make sure I had enough stitches on my needles.
Those stitch markers are a blessing it makes is so much simpler for me to see where I am. I am quite excited to see how I make out with this. The yarn I am using is Patons Misty, which is 48% acrylic, 32 % nylon, 10% wool and 10% mohair. So it should be quite light to wear and pretty with it. It is a pale green with a bit of beige in it, very Spring like.
I have to thank Angie for lending me her large stitch markers, mine are smaller and wouldn't fit around the 9.00 mm needles.
