more knitting...

knitting project
You may not know this but a huge part of my anxiety re: this project is that in every scarf and purse I've "knit" so far I've actually purled. It's always just felt easier for me. So, last night I set out to knit the tension square before embarking on the point edge wrap. Now I'm worried- do you see all the mistakes in that wee thing? And you don't even want to know how long that took me. Hah! At this rate I may have a wrap by the end of the year. Beautiful yarn though, isn't it? ;) And just for the heck of it I thought I'd share my knit pattern books + mags. Um, when we do have a child I sure hope it's a girl. Ha!

I wouldn't see a mistake if you pointed it out to me :) You are truly a gifted crafter which far more ambition and motivation then I have ever had! Can't wait to see the finished product (even if it takes a while :))

My knit instructor taught me that it is the process and not necessarily the end product that matters most...she is very wise. ;o)

On the other hand, I certainly understand the anxiety that comes with the investment of money and lots of time. I wish you the best of luck and pray you enjoy the process of your endeavor.

Joleen...I don't see any mistakes. I just looked again....nope, none. Looks perfect to me but I don't know anything about knitting either. I'm sure it is going to look fabulous when complete.

p.s. you are such a sweetie to leave that comment on my blog...thanks bunches.

How interesting that you feel so comfortable about purl stitches. We used to say in my knitting class years ago that we had to purl because we'd been bad ; ) Your knitting books are great, so inspiring. I have loved "Simple knits with a Twist" and have wanted to try the knitted tulle bag for quite a while.
