Just_A_Gurl_In_Seattle, I got your message - thanks! - but can't reply to it. (It says sender doesn't accept replies.) Hope you see this!
"Maybe it will be underpants," was Nili's comment when she saw my first attempt at a top-down raglan sweater. (She's a friend's daughter, 4 1/2.)
...but this triggered an eruption! I've broken a couple of bamboo needles before, but never metallic ones.
It's a wonder I make any progress at all:
Here's a swatch I knitted to test the same pattern in two ways: mixing purls & knits to the left, and knits only to the right. (It is easy to see where I didn't pull the yarn hard enough!)
This is how people knitted in Sweden before "continental" arrived.
Learning in the morning, teaching in the afternoon!
Joakim (6) was eager - and quick! - to learn.
Thanks for kind comments!
