i’m going to look at knitting stuff

Knitting success!

When I first started my first real project, toe-up socks, I cast on with Judy’s magic cast-on.  It was really hard for me, especially in the beginning, to get the new stitches back onto the needle in home position because whenever I did that, I would knit too tightly so the end stitches would not go back up and would twist.  I’d have to sit there and pick at them.  Big reason why socks take me a long time to do.  I had the same trouble when making hexipuffs (I will get back to the quilt.  I need to pass this exam first!)

But I just started a project where I cast on with Judy’s magic cast on and I didn’t have any trouble, not even when knitting through the back loop.

Tension level up???  :D

:(  I knit real slowly (now SUPER slowly since I have carpal tunnel and no time) so I made a small neckwarmer and it’s cute but itchy.  I think I might be allergic to the fibers.  :(
