Knitting with fingers, not sticks

25Nov08

Our friends taught us how to finger knit – one, two, three and four-finger (online instructions can be found here). We spent a long ferry ride practicing with wool scraps. The wooliest wool seems to work the best, because the wooly bits cover up the holes.

New skills are always good. Now, if I could only get myself going on knitting knitting – you know, with sticks. When I was shopping for pom-pom wool for the toques, I was drooling over all of the beautiful wool. It would be nice to be able to use it.

E folded a mountain of laundry in order to earn her own ball of yarn. She chose a beautiful blue skein from the shop. I’ll post updates… one day.
