CO 44 sts on dpn.
I swear - Morse Code would be easier.
That little sentence was the last straw. Pushed me right over the edge.
Cast on 44 stitches on double-pointed needles.
Who's idea was it to knit with not two, but FOUR needles at one time?
All I want to do is knit a pair of (skill level ONE) FINGERLESS gloves.
So.. a lot of you knit out there. Believe me, I've noticed. Caps, caps with patterns, SWEATERS, wool, wool spinning... my head was spinning. Dreaming of sheep. Drooling over patterns that may as well be written in another language. I dug out my needles and well.. after sitting in the orchard CASTING-ON for an hour and a half (fingers white and numb by now), I packed it in.
So tomorrow - I am going to a knitting class. I can't wait.
Maybe now someone can explain why my right index finger points like a irish setter when I hold the yarn? I'll keep you posted. At this point I am just hoping I can make it through with out injuring myself!
k1,p1 or bust!!
(I need that on a tee-shirt)
