|Ugly ribbing and pretty cable knitting.|
I took a knitting workshop on Monday night, hosted by Yarn Bomb Yukon. What was supposed to be a lesson on how to cable stitch basically became a beginners class on knitting. I think there were 4 or 5 of us who were just starting out out of the 6 or 7 in the class? Since I'd taught myself the basics the week before, I caught on pretty quickly and helped out a few others who were struggling. I didn't realize how lucky I am to have learned when I was younger, since by the end of the class, I had learned how to do ribbing and cable knitting, while other's were stuggling to figure out knit and purl (or just knit, in some cases). Spending over 20 years as a crocheter probably helped, since I understand yarn handling and tension, stuff like that.
|Box stitch. Sort of. I butchered a few sections of it. This was good practice on keeping track of a pattern.|
The class was a lot of fun, and I met some cool people! Some of the women from Yarn Bomb Yukon are part of a group that gets together once a week at a local pub for a sit and stitch night, and I think I'll join them when they start up again this fall.
Anywho, boring post is boring. I'll try to post about a finished project (or possibly a book review) next time. Or maybe more spazzing about someone else's awesome projects! Heh heh.
