Lorelei came over on Monday night and we had a little knitting party. It was great. Iâ€™ve never taught someone to knit before, and Iâ€™m a little concerned that Iâ€™m teaching her wrong, because sheâ€™s left-handed, but she seems to be getting it OK. I need to look up in Knitting Without Tears what Elizabeth Zimmerman says about teaching leftys.
And, I figured out pretty much what row Iâ€™m on for my lacy-late Christmas gift-scarf Iâ€™m working on! And Iâ€™m zipping along on that right now, too. I have been really pulling it out on the way home, I can get 2 rows in on the subway in the AM if I really get started right away.
When I was pulling out yarn for Lorelei to use, I found my sock yarn. Oh, right, I need to make socks â€“ I had forgotten completely! And then this morning on the train I remembered my chinchilla yarn also. Damn. I had a whole line up of projects to work on before I get any new stuff, and I had totally, and conveniently, forgotten!
