Another Knitting Update
Here's the garish little object I'm making with my ugly yarn and chopsticks, just to practice. It's all knit. I'm still having trouble with purl, and I must be doing it wrong and clearly need a knitting friend to watch me and give me guidance -- but that won't be happening for a while, so I'm sticking with the knit stitch.
I found another shawl pattern, all in knit stitch, so I'm going to start work on that when my mail-order supplies arrive. In the meantime, Garish Object is fun to work on, even if it's not pretty. I might try to turn it into a cat toy when I decide I'm finished with it (when the better supplies arrive, probably).
Garish Object is all lumpy and everything, but at least it's getting my hands used to the motion. And considering that I've only been doing this for two days -- which were also crammed full of grading, preaching, and a hospital shift -- I think I could be doing worse!
