Im proud of myself!
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.

And guess what?

I DID LEARN 2!

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.

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..." 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... No more just knit or purl stiches...I might advance to something better than a towel.

Oh, so THAT'S the trick! 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.

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

Congrats on your accomplishments.
