It's Friday! Knitting yarns and tails!

 Not a lot of much has been done (except for Celtic Solstice! - only a week behind now!)

I did want to post what I am working on (VERRRRRRRY slowly!) as regards knitting!  I WAS working on the Age of Brass and Steam Kerchief - and on my own could actually get the 3rd row completed!  All 6 stitches worth (it takes only 2 stitches - knit - per row on the first three!)  It was the 4th row that was my FIRST downfall!

Judy L. was kind enough to explain how to do the next row - and then I THOUGHT I could figure out the rest on my own.  I probably could - but after struggling through the 8th row - I decided that it was definitely beyond where I was at the moment!  So I decided to UFO it for a while - at least until I felt better about my abilities (or non-abilities at least as regards coordination and knitting!)

Looking around for another knitting project - I found EASY knitted cowl!

The word EASY is what drew me!  And I think I have enough yarn!  Probably enough to do 6 or 7 easy cowls if that's what I want to do!  I DO have to get a different pair of needles though, drat it! which means either a visit to the yarn shop, or a visit to an online yarn shop - either way, I start drooling when I hit the store/site!!!!  Still I will be good!  Honest! (NO yarn, NO other patterns, NO classes which almost always get me in trouble! ONLY the knitting needles!)

So - no pix yet - BUT a referral to the pattern I think I will do (EASY still draws me at this point!  So does BEGINNER!)

Please visit Judy's blog for more about What's on the Needles!

We all start at the beginning and add skills as we muddle along. At least that is how I feel. You still gained experience on your frogged project. That is not all bad. Good luck on your cowls....and staying strong to only purchase the knitting needles.
