Fur that is! (yeah I know I now call it the devil, and really hate to knit with it except under certain circumstances)
While cleaning out the 2 rooms, I found my very first knitting project that started the ball rolling in 2005. I guess my son was holding it hostage or something! FF scarves were all the rage, or at least the beginning of the rage (not sure the rage has ended either) so I cast on 22 stitches (yeah, it is emblazoned in my mind LOL!)
See red, my favorite color!
So here I go, check out knitting help to refresh my memory and off I go!
Hmmm..so where did I go wrong? The left side has 22 stitches...the right..probably about 40 or more. It took a while to figure out what I was doing wrong. Someone finally helped me! See I learned to M1 all on my own, didn't even plan it!
I kept thinking I was dropping a stitch when in fact I was knitting a M1. Heh..see I had to get all advanced on myself! So I finished this anyways and even wore it! I folded it down and it worked. Although, it could work as a hat, a teddy, a tube top...the possibilities are endless.
Work on the room for my daughter is finished, for me, I had to get a new tv as the ancient one was just not going to work with the new digital stuff coming up and hey, I need one in there! As for my room..um..gonna take today and tomorrow to organize....whew! I may show you sneak pictures tomorrow, but I want to change the wolf theme in there, so that'll be a while.
Thank you all for your kind words on my last post. It really helped a lot. I know I'm not alone, but I guess at the time I posted, I just felt that way. So onward to funny and neat things and hey, show me your first knitted object if you still have it, or at least tell me about it.
Stay tuned tomorrow for my 2nd knitted project..after that..um..it's all a blur!
