My knitting education begins tomorrow afternoon! I’m SO very excited for this new endeavor. I’ve got unstoppable visions of scarfs and mittens and hats and sweaters and so. much. more fluttering about my mind’s eye.
At this point in the journey, all I can tell you is that those are size 8 bamboo needles and the ball is 4-ply worsted weight Peruvian highland wool. And that concludes the scope of my knitting knowledge. Bring it, yarn! I’ve been ready for you for a long, long time!!!
*Candlerites-I picked up these knitting supplies at the well-stocked, super hospitable Yarn Nook on Smokey Park Hwy. Linda, the proprietress, is a dear soul, helping me get my needles and yarn, spinning the skein into a ball for me, letting Huxley curl up with a stuffed animal life-size cat in the window and sun himself (themselves?) while I shopped, and informing me that the Yarn Nook holds beginning knitting classes, also, every Wednesday and Saturday from 10:30-12:30 on an ongoing basis for $8/class. I’ve driven by this little building for the past 5 years and never stopped in before. That’s the end of that! I know I’ll be back, and you should give it a peek, too!
