The first thing I need to work on and finish is the white afghan. I have all the panels complete in the plastic bag except for the one on top.
I don't have a clue how I knit all that!
I must have been much smarter in my younger days. I never could knit directly from a pattern. I would always get lost and spend most of my time trying to figure out where I was.
I'm a visual person and found that marking out the stitches on graph paper worked for me. I'm going to have to reread the pattern and the graph I marked out and get that all figured out before I can begin again.
I quit working on this afghan because I made the mistake of showing it to the person I was making it for... surprise! Well, it was for me. She didn't know it was a present for her and she didn't like it. Oops! So, I put it all away. sigh...
Well, I'll finish it and keep it for my own use. I'll try to finish it. I was just going to leave off the last panel. I still might if I can't get the gauge to look right.
Oh, well. I've got the time to work on it now and I have got over my negative feelings. At the time I thought it was such a complete waste of time and money (didn't want to see it) and chucked it a bag and stuffed it in a closet.
Kristine wants to crochet some things, so I'll give her some of the yarn and she can use the crochet hooks. I have a wooden crochet hook that I just loved to use. I lost one of my good knitting needles. Hope I can find it.
