With summer on it’s way and the hope of some extra time on my hands, I made a few little goals for myself. I wanted to finally learn broomstick lace. And I did! That has been a longstanding goal. I can’t even estimate how many years. I wanted to clean out the cupboards in the kitchen. Erm, I’m working on it. It’s just not as fun as yarn. I wanted to wash the walls. In progress I thought maybe I would tackle tatting. Well, that all depends on how the cards fall this summer. I wanted to crank out a few of the patterns that have been floating around in my head for months. In progress I have a couple of fun things in the works. And most most most importantly (to me anyway) I wanted to learn to knit with needles. That has been a goal for a bit more than 2 years now. So, close your eyes…
are you peeking?
I did it! This little swatchie was done completely in the purl stitch. It was the one I needed the most practice on. I did an almost identical one in all knits but frogged it to practice purling. With this swatch off the needles, what was a girl to do? More practice, of course!
Stockinette! I even learned to bind off and knit two together. No pictures of the k2tog. You’ll just have to take my word for it. Now on to lace ;D Well, eventually anyway, hee-hee. Have a great night!
