Wow! My grandma certainly made knitting look very easy and it was not easy at all. I started by learning how to cast on to my knitting needle, and luckily this was a fairly easy task. Then onto the knitting portion. I only practiced the knit stitch this week and once I finish my mini project I will learn the pearl stitch. Right now I am trying to knit a washcloth before I begin my blanket because I want to work on my stitches and the right tension I should keep on my yarn. I have started and restarted so many times this week that I lost count. However, I did find out that when you drop a stitch there is a solution that does not require restarting! It is called “tinking” which is “kint” spelt backwards. I haven’t quite gotten the hang of this yet, but I have started purposely dropping stitches early in my project to practice without having to lose a lot of progress if it doesn’t work out as planned. Overall, I was very frustrated at the beginning of this week but things are starting to look up. I even had times that I couldn’t put the needles down! Once you get a good groove, it becomes a soothing and addicting hobbie. Can’t wait to fine tune my knitting skills and finish my first project!
