Hi, I'm Tracy. Just started knitting about 2 weeks ago and fell in
. Knitting is very Zen...lotta life lessons in knitting.
I never knitted before, and no one in my family was a knitter that I knew of, but I always wanted to do it having danced ballet so many years and watched girls sit for hours making beautiful things out of string. Learning with books and diagrams proved too confusing. So I took a class at Micheal's 2 Mondays ago, where I learned how to cast on and do the knit stitch....
Currently working on my first 2 garter stitch scarves....one with sz 10 needles (which I started in the class) and one with sz 7....they look QUITE different. I'm still deciding if it's the needle size or the fact that I started one in the class and one after a few days of getting the hang of it.
And still a bit nervous about how messy the edges of things seem to look. Not as bad in the sz 7 project as the sz 10.
Daydreaming about doing an afghan or a shawl soon....
We'll see...a girl can dream.
Anyway...Just wanted to say "hi". Nice to meet you all! Many of you are fantastically talented. I look forward to hanging out here.
