I know I haven't been here in a couple of months.... been really busy with the Holidays and then getting ready for the move to Australia. (DH is on his way "as I type" and I will leave in 3 weeks.)
Anyway, MIL is staying with me for a couple of weeks, helping me get the final things for the move settled and she had tried to teach me to crochet before, but it never clicked. Well, she tried again and it worked.
So, I thought, since I am now holding my yarn in my left hand to crochet, why not try Continental knitting again.... and voila!
I am practicing on a piece that will then be felted into a coaster (first time for felting too), so my mistakes will be less noticable!
