Yarn Along: Tiny Tea Leaves...
I am so happy that I am knitting my first sweater. It has been a little nerve-wracking (just ask my sister who had to talk me off of a cliff as I was working on the armholes with her on the phone!). Also, I dropped a stitch and didn't realize it for a few rows last night. Normally, I would just put the project into my basket and bring it to Monika for repairs, but this time I decided to actually look up a video on picking up a dropped stitch. Do you know what? It was easy to fix! I am still surprised! My goal is to be ready to knit the sleeves by Thursday's Knit Night (which means that I have about 8 inches of stockinette to crank out). Those will require that I use double pointed needles, so I'll need a little guidance before I begin.
I am not reading anything right now. It is sad, but true. The children and I are still in Ramona-Land though!
