I don’t know many knitters IRL, so I was thrilled to discover one of my new coworkers is a knitter. She mentioned it in passing when I pulled out my knitting during some down time at work. I have been telling her all about the projects I have been working on lately…
She was hanging out last night in my office (we were slow) and I had just printed off the pattern for Dashing. I read a few lines, casted on, and got started. After a few minutes, she suddenly asked how I knew what I was doing. I asked, did she mean the Magic Loop, or the cables, or which part? All of it, she said! She then told me that she only knows how to do garter stitch, and had someone cast on for her. I can’t believe I’ve been babbling on all this time and she was probably thinking “what are you talking about?!”
I am going to see if we can get together for some lessons, and was so excited thinking about everything I want to show her last night. I realized WOW, I have come a long way in the past year. :mrgreen:
How about you, do you remember how it was to be struggling with your first stitches, or the first time you figured out how to fix a mistake? That pulling up the working yarn so the first stitch looks like 2 stitches was the bane of my existence when I started. I was making a scarf that kept getting wider and wider!
