After my disastrous first attempt at knitting, I was determined to give it another try before labeling myself a complete failure. This is partly because I am extremely stubborn and partly because I've already decided to give everyone person I know a scarf for Christmas (family and friends who just read that, please ignore or act surprised)
Now in order to keep up with my production schedule I needed to pick up the pace so on Saturday I met up with two lovely ladies (thanks girls!) for our first stitch 'n' bitch session. It was great, we got to gossip, vent and eat all while I slowly learned how to knit - again. The key I found was using large needles and chunky yarn (read: less work, more forgiving) and off I went. Now I do admit the process has been slow and although I've ripped apart rows in frustration, my confidence has been restored and I am determined to complete at least one scarf before Christmas...guess everyone will just have to share!
