Things went much better today. I switched to a ball of Vanna’s Choice that I had on hand. The color works well with the eventual destination for these experiments.
I cast on 18 stitches and managed to maintain that count. I was knitting while talking on the phone with the Lovely Sarah, obviously she was my lucky charm.
She gave me some knitting hints as well as talking me thru trying out some decrease techniques. SKP, being one. Don’t ask me to describe it, but it did create a nifty looking decrease.
Tomorrow will be about shapes. I’m going to try decreasing more. I’m feeling brave and ready to branch out from squares and rectangles anyway.
