In which Momma comes to the rescue!
After my last update about my knitty adventure, I continued for all of 2 more stitches before I noticed another dropped stitch and had to rip it all back again! I don’t have any photo evidence of this as I could not face taking the photo.
Now, I felt like stuffing the yarn into the bottom of a bag and just forgetting about the whole sorry thing, but deep down I knew I could do this if I just kept trying and waited for it to click. There is a point where things just click into place and whatever it is you are doing feels more natural.
Well, I recast and re knit the first three rows and then half way through the fourth row I realised that I was knitting quite quickly, my knitting action felt more fluid and I realised that the muscles in my face were actually relaxed and not contorted…and I was enjoying this knitting experience…finally!
And so I continued until I got to row 19 and realised I had knit a stitch instead of slipped it!
Now, I only know how to rip back and start again, but I just couldn’t bring myself to do that, but I also couldn’t work out how to unknit the stitch either. So I headed over to Mom’s who rescued the day and who also taught me how to unknit the stitch and fix the problem.
I am now on row 20 and am dancing the happy knitty dance!
The pattern is this rather magnificent blanket... by Purl Soho inspired by Barbara Walker.
This knitting adventure is finally becoming enjoyable!
