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.

New Knit

I started the Beginner II class at Commuknity tonight. My project is to make a hat from Rowan Big Wool, but I'm not sure I'm going to like the result. Seems like it's going to knit up tight. The instructions call for size 15 needles, but that made my guage 2.5 stitches bigger per inch than required. So I went to size 13 and it seems better -- just half a stitch off. I do know now that my head is 57 centimeters. The instructor measured. Sounds big, eh?

So knitting is happening; I just have nothing to show at the moment. I'm still working on two scarves. Now that I'm not obsessively knitting 12 hours a day (a favorable development), completion is slower. I'm doing other creative stuff.

Tomorrow evening is the Breast Cancer Awareness open house at Commuknity. I'm looking forward to it!

    I was wondering how you were getting all those knitting projects done! I've been working on the same damn scarf for 3 weeks. One day, it will be finished.
