Went camping with Mr PG last weekend. Took needles, and some Sugar and Cream yarn to putz around with...and a small stitch book in a fit of "OMG YOU CAN DO EET!" that I bought from Wally World. :oops:

And guess what?

I DID LEARN 2! :cheering:

I learned a MOSS STITCH..

Multiples of 2 sts.
Row 1- (RS) (K1, P1) across
Row 2- (K1, P1 ) across
Row 3 (P1, K1) across
Row 4 (P1, K1) across
Repeat 1-4 for pattern



Easy peasy...yes...so why do I post about it? Cause the NEXT one I did was a TEENSY bit more intricate..yet only K and P.

Divided Boxes

Multiples of 5 sts.
Row 1- (RS) knit across
Row 2- (K1, P4) across
Rows 3 and 4 (K3, P2) across
Row 5- (K1, P4) across
Rows 6 & 7- Knit across
Repeat rows 2-7 for pattern.

The one I plan on attacking next is the GOBLETS pattern

Multiples of 6 +2 sts.

Row 1- (RS) P3, K2, (P4, K2) across to last 3 sts, P3.
Row 2- K3, P2, (K4, P2) across to last 3 sts, K3.
Row 3 and 4 -Repeat rows 1 and 2
Row 5- P2, (K4, P2) across.
Row 6- K2, (P4, K2) across.

So yeah, I take every little victory that I accomplish and savor it to the very last cold drop. *grin*

And Mr. PG is happy, cause the Divided Boxes is being made into camp washclothes and towels for him to take THIS weekend. :cheering:

So needless to say, he was asking me yesterday, "Are you going yarn shopping?" when I went grocery shopping last night. I said, "well, I will if I MUST..." :teehee: He had a request for some brown and green clothes, so I picked up some more S&C of those colors, and...AND...a sock pattern book, and some DPNs to start practicing THOSE now.



Pardon me for bragging, Im just so thrilled. Its like it all just clicked into place... :roflhard: No more just knit or purl stiches...I might advance to something better than a towel.

I have yet to convince my DH that all this knitting is a "good thing"...............but he's not a sweater-wearer, so I guess he figures there's nothing in it for him. :teehee:

I love camping. I think it would be great to knit sitting at a camp fire.

Congrats on your accomplishments. :cheering:
