I am working on a Star Christmas ornament. I keep hitting snags as I find abbreviations or markings I don’t know how to do. It isn’t hard once I figure them out. But this is only the 2nd time I have ever tried to follow a pattern. I learned how to read some basic abbreviations in a knitting group in late June, but in 90 minutes there is only so much you can learn.
On another set of needles I am knitting a checkerboard square style afghan, out of variagated yarn of reds, oranges and yellows that look like “fire” for my daughter who has joined the US Navy.
