The Time Has Come
We have casted on for The Central Park Hoodie.. I am looking forward to this pattern. After seeing so many projects on Ravelry, we decided to give it a try. This will be our first cardigan, wish us luck. So far so good. Sandra, Chelette and I started at the same time, and now we talked Jennifer into doing it also. Since she is more expirenced an a expert at cardigans, we're hoping she can help us out with any foreseeable problems, in following the pattern.
I am also still working on my blanket swatches and will post the new ones as soon as I take some pictures..
The other thing I am trying after watching Elizabeth Zimmerman's Knitting Workshop, is to knit continental because it seems to go a bit faster. I first learned this way and then when I took my first knitting class my teacher taught me to throw. Then I started a combination of them both.. I can knit continental but purling is more difficult for me to do, I keep giving it a try though. Because of the aches in my hands I think its a good idea to know both. I aspire to get a little more speed, but I know that realistically I will not be able to get the speed of The Yarn Harlot or Eunny Jang.
