Knitting Break

I bet you were all wondering what I was doing when Katie and Margaret were doing all of that reading. I was attempting to knit. Lace knitting is completely new for me. I used to think that lace knitters were crazy. I don't know if my opinion has changed or if I have just join the crazy club. It took me 2 whole days of knitting and ripping before I thought I had it figured out. Then I knitted for two days, until my scarf was about 10 inches long (proud, I was so proud). Then disaster struck. I had one too many stitches, after back knitting, I had one too few, then I tried to correct the error of my needles when I dropped a stitch in the middle of the row. Arrrgh! I took a deep breath and cut the yarn. This picture represents knitting on a 6 hour flight from Anchorage to Chicago.

Keep up the fight Sandy! I'm sure we'll have a lot to commisserate about once I get started on my scarf!
