in the mail last week -- it looks great! Thanks, Kari!
My daughter and I were working concessions for the boys basketball tournament at our church last Saturday. We didn't have a lot of customers, so she was drawing in her sketchbook and I decided to start on the oddball snuggle. I wrapped my tail up with the tail already there, picked up the needles, and then couldn't remember what to do next!
First I picked up the wrong end, trying to work the yarn that I'm saving to weave in when I'm done. Then I had to set it all down and try to pick it up again.
I've been crocheting for the last three or four months, not doing any knitting, so I picked up the working yarn with my left hand, wrapped it around my finger, and then couldn't figure out how to get it on the needle.
Then I rememberd the yarn goes in my right hand. I was able to knit that way for a little while, but whenever my attention drifted a little bit (such as when people walked by), I'd move the yarn to my left hand and get stuck again.
I had tried continental knitting a while ago, but was impatient with how uneven the stitches were compared to how they usually look and gave it up. I will tell you it took me two days to realize that I what I ended up doing for the next two and half rows was continental.
I thought I was just making it up. And the stitches are still uneven (but not as much) and this *is* a blanket for the animal shelter, so I think it will both straighten up in the wash and not matter when it's getting used.
My daughter thought it was funny that I forgot how to knit, even if it was just for a couple of minutes.
Anyway, I'm working on finishing Frozen
now although it will probably be a couple of weeks while I get back up to speed with knitting. Should I put out signups for the next one now or wait another week or so when it gets closer to being ready to go out? Is it too early to ask for a commitment?
