Last night’s knitting bee consisted mainly of Alison, Jason and Kelly. Kelly showed up at around 9 to watch us knit, and Les joined us for some Incredible Hulk after his work was finished at 10. Jason and Alison learned well; I’m hoping it was the addition of all the sexual knitting innuendo that did it. Amusingly, Jason The Boy picked things up faster. I think it’s because Alison got hung up at the beginning by having to cast on twice, because I didn’t teach her properly the first time. I didn’t notice that she was adding an extra stitch each time she cast on a loop. Reminds me of my early days; I made a lot of mistakes. My needles slipped and my yarn got tangled. All part of the learning process, guys. You guys, you guys are The Guys.
I started a hat yesterday, and it’s looking good. Hopefully it will fit. My gauge was right, so it had better work! If not, I shall wreak vengeance upon Debbie Stoller. I’ve had to modify every pattern of hers I’ve ever had to use. It’s beginning to irk me.
