Another class in knitting

I took a class call beyond the basics in which I am learning M1R, M1L, YO, KF&B, SSK, K2TOG and SP with yarn in front. At the end I'll have a nice mini shawl and I'm hoping I'll be able to make a scarf that uses YO and SSK throughout the pattern. I've tried to make it 4 times now ending with pulling the whole thing out and starting over. I wish I had started knitting many years ago, this is so relaxing and I end up with something unlike playing world of warcraft.

Good for you these are very valuable things to know in your knitting. I thought my self with books and youtube but I know some people learn better with live instruction.

Congrats on the class. I learned a lot of what I know by being a voracious reader. Plus, the kindness of fellow knitters who shared their knowledge. Enjoy.

Books, knitting, cats, fountain pens...Life is Good.

be careful! Lace is even more addicting then most knitting.

Knitting is one of those wonderful things we have that actually allows us to DO-OVER. My middle school kids are always asking for do-overs and I caution them that we can never undo or unsay anything. Unknitting, tinking, frogging, ripping, whatever you want to call it, offers a terrific chance to have a do-over. Thankfully, like most who are passionate about their craft, we don't do-over and leave it in a pile on the floor, we usually roll it up and start over...and over...and over until it comes out correctly. Keep learning, Don! It's what we do...forever. I liked the photo...thanks for sharing!
