Knitting practice...

Last night I decided that I wanted to learn to knit.
My Mom knitted so beautifully and I am sure that she tried to teach me many times. She always said that the tension should be in the wool, not in me.
This is my practice work, and I am not at all good at fixing mistakes.
I will learn.
There are so many helpful website that have videos where I can learn from.

I have had this magazine for some time, as well as some wool and #10 needles.

Happiness in having 3 birthdays to celebrate today!!

I knit only a teensy bit. I can make scarves, but nothing more. I think your mom was correct and I have way tooo much tension in me. good luck.

Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours.
