I knit in a very odd way, I call it half continental. I have the yarn in my left hand, and throw it with my left hand as well. So it is not english, and not continental....somewhere half way there. I have found it is really slow, though my knitting is very nice looking. Now I have been trying to knit in the normal continental style, and my tension has gone out the window. It is very lose and I have no idea how to fix this. Any suggestions on keeping it tight? I am knitting a scarf longways in an attempt to get my gauge to work properly...not working so far.
In other news, the choir I am in in is singing at the National Music Educators Association NW Division Conference in Spokane, WA this weekend. I am amazed that anyone would have a convention on V-Day weekend. We get to leave at 6 am on Friday and are singing at two highschools on our way up there. It is only a six hour drive. I am sad though, we will miss a lot of the really good sessions and performances because of the distance we have to travel. It anyone is a NMEA member they can come see us sing, but otherwise I think everyone is out of luck. My parents have not yet been able to hear me sing this year.
