My Grandmother tried,my mother tried..God,they really tried!They really tried to teach me to knit but it doesn't come naturally to me.This completely baffled them when they realised I had inherited the curse.My great grandmother Evangeline who was originally cursed was exceptionally gifted and did not come across any craft she could not master.Obviously I inherited the manic making but not the endless capabilities...but I do still try.
I found this pretty tangle of yarn at the back of my dresser and set about untangling it and having another go at knitting.Purl stitch is the one that seems to challenge my co-ordination and one needle always seems to end up hitting the floor.Any hints on this would be gratefully welcome!
So I made it easy for myself and stuck to knit stitch and made myself a very long skinny scarf.I kept it skinny because I like wearing scarves indoors sometimes in the winter and thought this would be more versatile.It was good practise and I quite like the finished scarf so all is good.
I really admire those who can knit and crochet and to be honest I love the clickedey click sound the needles make!So I'm going to and challenge my nemesis purl and try knitting a hat maybe next.Any tips very welcome?!
