Knit Together

Let one who wants to move and convince others, first be convinced and moved themselves. If a person speaks with genuine earnestness the thoughts, the emotion and the actual condition of their own heart, others will listen because we all are knit together.

I've Got Blisters On My Fingers!

Not really. But I do have a small callous developing on the tip of my right thumb, where I have the most contact with yarn as I push it from needle to needle.

I practiced the purl stitch. I do not like it very much. I also continued knitting the scarf, but I messed up somewhere. I tried to find and fix it, but I'm not skilled enough to figure that out yet. I'll go to the yarn store and ask for help.

But really, I ought to give my hands and eyes a rest. There's a whole weekend ahead. I've neglected working out for the past two days... best get back in the swing of it.

    Do you have a digital camera or scanner? Maybe a reader could spot the problem.

    As your fingers get used to knitting, you'll either get used to the callous or figure out how to knit so you don't get them. I did both.

    Hey Eden, thanks. I do have a camera but was able to get the problem fixed at the store today. I met a lovely person who gave me a lot of help. Except that I screwed up again while I was there -- and she helped fix that time. That's when I decided that perhaps my hands and eyes needed a rest. Yesterday I knit 11 hours, and perhaps that was ummm, a bit much. ;)

    Hi Kate! Good to see you here. The callous is a mark of distinction. ;) As long as whatever develops doesn't interfere with the stitching, I'm okay.

    11 hours! No wonder you made a mistake!
    And somehow I always dislike purling, because it feels kind of awkward.
