I am self taught knitter and I have a pattern from Sox Pixie and it says M1 Does anyone know what that is? Knitting help has PM which is also in the pattern, but I am really stumped on M1. I want to make the Clochette Hat.
I have been knitting on and off since my grandmother in 1960 taught me how to knit with pearl cotton, we were knitting bandages for burn victims that she sent to some place, I don't even know where it was. Then when I was about 9 she taught me how to make slippers. She never used a pattern and I never saw her knit anything else.
So far I have knitted scarves, hooded sweatshirts, a cabled sweater for a child, clothing for 18" dolls and baby sweaters, bonnets and booties. I have started a shrug.
On a personal note: I am a "younger?" widow, widowed at 51, and have been depressed, losing my income, having a house payment, (he had no insurance) and taking on a job to make ends meet. I also have a disabled 33 year old son living with me.
Knitting helps me a lot. I used to quilt when my husband was here but I lost the desire for now.
Would really like help with the M1 thing.
