Knit One, Pearl Two

Ok, so now my two precious visitors are back in California but not before leaving me with a challenge! Joleen thought it would be a good idea to teach me and Aimee to knit. Aimee appeared to catch on pretty fast and I was impressed with what she had accomplished before returning to California. But as for me, knitting may be the challenge of a lifetime. My knitting as a beginner is more like Knit one Drop Two! However, I promised Joleen that I would finish this scarf and I will, but oh my gosh, what have you got me into? I started out "casting on" a total of 25 stitches but by the time I got to the third row I realized I had dropped about 5 stitches. How does that happen? I was sure I picked up every one of the stitches I started with. Now I am going to take out all but the first row of "pearling" and start from there. Thanks Joleen for your confidence and I will not let you down!

YEA!!!...I am so glad to hear that you have not given up. I hope you are enjoying the process. Knitting is my new found love. I spend at least a few minutes everyday, just relaxing while I complete a few rows. Just remember, it's meant to be fun. :o)

I'm so jealous. You all know something I don't. Can't wait to see what you create, Mom. DON't GIVE UP! No matter how long it takes. Imagine the sense of self accomplishment you'll have. What a neat gift too! Can I expect a scarf for Christmas this year?
