Today, I started my Knitting 101 class at my local yarn store. Well, all I have to say it is different and I am way slow at it. It is coming out well though, slowly but surely. We are creating a simple baby sweater. It has some garter stitch, some purls and eventually we'll learn how to increase and decrease for the neckline.
Holding the needles was a little bit awkward, but I managed. I was first taught how to knit about 12 years ago by my grandmother, whom lives in Mexico. Consequently, I know how to hold my needles in the Continental fashion, I tried to do it the English Throw way, but it was too difficult, so I am going to stick with the method my Grandma taught me :).
As homework, we were supposed to knit 5 inches in length from the cast-on. I finished it! And now, I am ready to keep on knitting which means I have a trip to my local Michaels to pick up another set of needles, or maybe I should finish my loom project first...hmmmm, decisions.
