Next I took a continental knitting class. Among the many benefits, any change of routine is good for the aging brain. Together with the ability to change easily between knit and purl stitches and the different hand motion it seemed like a good thing to try.
This is 300 stitches of Alpaca for Marks striped vest. The 3 inches of ribbing seemed the perfect application to practice.
The class was expertly taught by Lesley Solomon, owner of Woolstock in Maryland. She had an infectious sense of humor and an excellent method of explaining the technique.
Oh and did you notice the beautiful hot pink Silhouette needles? Beautiful needles, beautiful yarn...this project is going to be a dream.
