Knitting Up A Storm!

Friday, September 30, 2005

I am working on a felted bag using size 8mm needles, and man, my left hand is killing me. Did I stop knitting? Oh God no, so I gave the continental knitting method a try. I can do it now (aftermany failed attempts) and my left hand doesn't hurt as much, but now my right hand is hurting more than my left hand ever did.

I just can't win. On a good note, I can knit continantal. I can't purl, I am working in the round and I only need to knit. The bag is almost done. Wow, maybe I am faster knitting continental , or maybe it is because I'm using 8mm needles. Naw - I'm knitting faster.

I'd show you a picture, but I didn't take one and how wants to see a plain old bag before it is felted. Maybe I'll show you on Monday. Maybe. If I can't it done.

Family stuff - my wonderful nephew is one year old today and the parents are having a birthday party tomorrow for him. Yeah. I bought him one of
these. Not from that company, but you get the idea. Both my girls have one and I love giving them. Fantastic gift.

Have a good weekend folks.
