Like A Virgin – Knitting for the 1st time

I thought it was wise to start my Learn To Knit A Scarf & Hat project a little early, so I’d have a head start as a very, very green knitter. Its been a bumpy head start. Kate made me start over (frog?) my hat after my first few rows, then I failed to reverse stockinette my CC color (I knit 8 rows instead of reverse stockinetting 6). After that mistake, Angela convinced me to hide it from Kate and keep going. She’s good at PR, so she told me to sell it as “artistic license”. Yeah…. I meant to do that.

I think I’m starting to get the hang of this though. The more rows I do, the less I have to think about what I’m doing and the less I panic and run to Kate’s desk with knitting emergencies. (Apparently, I am a knitting hypochondriac, because most of my emergencies are false alarms. They’ve started calling me “the Boy Who Cried Kate”.)


Caught ‘red-handed’ – knitting at my desk. <
