Knitting in the Round
Knitting in the round looks a lot more complicated than it is. I was telling my husband, while we were driving my son back to UofO (which is when I knit-on car rides, plane rides, etc.) that I was going to knit six more rounds.
He looked at me like I was crazy. "What's a round?"
"When you knit completely around the circle," I told him.
"So why don't you say 'I'm going to knit around the circle?'"
"I don't know, because you just don't."
Now, life is too short to argue about knitting - especially when you're supposed to be knitting to relax. But, even though knitting is easy, you still have to concentrate...a little. Just look to see.
I took a knitting class and told the teacher that I kept losing my place whenever I was talking or watching t.v.
She told me (and I paid for this) don't talk or watch t.v. when you're knitting.
Anyone else get any great advice from a teacher?
