I fixed the second video in yesterday's post. Sorry 'bout that.
I am trying to re-learn how to knit. I never got good in the first place but I got on a knitting kick right about Christmas time one year and got all sorts of fab knitting supplies as Christmas gifts. And then more for my birthday. So I have the best knitting stash a non knitter has ever had. I recently decided that I had better taking up knitting again or find a good, new home for my supplies because the craft room runneth over and some thing's gotta go.
I pulled out my knitting book and noticed that the inscription from Mr. H wished me a happy 26th birthday. Wow, that was exactly 5 years ago. That knitting stuff has been feeling unloved for a very long time.
After reviewing the book (and reading "Kids Can Knit" at Borders) I finally figured out how to cast on and knit. You can see, after about 4 rows I figured out how to purl and achieve a fine stockinette. And then, for the first time ever, I managed to cast off! Previously I only made hats (where you don't have to cast off) I see a sweater in my future, don't you? Ha!
And not that you are holding your breath waiting for new posts here at Under Construction but I thought I'd let you know that we're heading to San Diego for a few days so I won't be around till next Tuesday or so.
