She thought that the way I held the knitting needles was kind of odd, but she said it seemed to be working for me, so she wasn't going to try to change it.

I have one of the Blossom Street pattern books -- I forget which one, but I *think* it is Knit Along with Debbie Macomber - The Shop on Blossom Street.

I have two of the books on audio CD, Back on Blossom Street and Summer on Blossom Street. I enjoyed them both quite a lot and have listened to them more than once. I look for more whenever I am at Costco, but I suppose I should just get the ones I missed with my Audible credits!

I hope I never have to let anyone see how I hold the needles! I taught myself to knit and I figured a way to hold them that I've never seen before, because it is VERY odd. My dd laughed at me, but she started doing the same thing. She has since learned how to hold them 'correctly' but I can't get the hang of it. Thank you for the great response!!
