Knitting Love Adventures

 Well, the progress was slow, painful and occasionally hilarious , but this past Saturday night at my stitching group I finally got some knitting time.  The knitting love was bordering on knitting hate for awhile there.


This tiny little swatch of a mere 12 stitches and 10 rows of garter stitch took the majority of 2 hours time and much coaching from my stitching buddies.

Including some interventional stitching by my friends A and T when things got too maddening. Though I did not allow them to correct my unintentional increases and decreases. I felt my swatch should make it’s debut on the blog warts and all.

As my friend T tells me all the time. I crochet my knitting.  Some yarn wrangling habits are stuck in my hands. I’m definitely more accustomed to having a hook at the end of my implement.

I’m beginning to have doubts about making it to the end of the 30 days I promised myself.  Especially as there are crochet projects and patterns wanting my attention too. It may be a few days before Swatch/Fragment #2 is attempted.
