Okay, something is really wrong with me...I have been aiming to go to bed since around 10 p.m. It is now 3:41 a.m. I can't stop knitting!!!!!! Let me continue. I'm a newbie knitter depending on YouTube and Craftsy. Going Continental because I crochet (and do it a heck of a lot better). I've wanted to cry, scream and throw these needles across the room. At one point I considered putting my small stash of knitting needles in the Goodwill box.
Just when I am about ready to call it quits, I find a new YT video and I say "this one is better, I can do this". Right now I have 4 rows of 43 stitches and I guess I will make the dreaded boring scarf that is every beginners fate. I purchased Pure Joy, a beautiful shawl by Joji Locatelli that I wanted to be my first knitted item but that ain't happening no time soon I think. As for now, this young grasshopper is really quitting for the night while me and this yarn are still on speaking terms. Peace.
