Week 7 In Review

hillside-1149463_1920All is quiet on the Midwestern front. Birthday parties and weddings and other frivolities and not a stitch of writing done.

In fairness, I’ve begun teaching myself how to knit.

I’ve successfully learned the long-tail single cast-on, the double cast-on (learnt in error), and the knit stitch. I am at present working on a sample square to practice making something from start to finish, and focusing on learning how to hold the needles, how taut the yarn needs to big, how lax the loops to make the knit stitch easier, etc. Given the results over a few half hour sessions of practice, this will likely never see the light of day: dropped stitches, and a tapered edge as with each row, I seem to be accumulating extra stitches. But who is keeping count? Certainly not me! (Ahem).

And I may have acquired a cold. Or really bad allergies. It’s a bad time for allergens around here. 🙂

Best of luck to all of the NaNoWriMo participants. I wish you well!
