Forcing myself to pit it down
Well I have decided to knit a large afghan for my MIL and will have to put sweet rememberance down so that I can concentrate on it. Being me I just have to be different. The pattern says to knit it in 7 strips but I will be knitting it all in one piece so I will have to get the pattern in order of the strips and pray I don't mess it up. Now I just have to decide on the colour scheme.

How about knitting in one piece and using the yard that rotates (probably not the correct word).

Why oh why would any would someone knit in 100 degree weather? Well, I am trying to forget my wip's staring at me. Now, actually doing both. I knit awhile then I put it down and jump to my wips and then I am cross stitching. I wish you well fellow knitter and cross stitcher. Peace. Pam

Deirdre, do you use circular needles to make an afghan all in one piece?
by: pamelastine11 on 08/08/18
I am hoping to use ordinary needles as I am not fond of circular needles but we shall see.

Deirdre, what size needle do you use and how many cast on stitches? Thanking you much. Pam

Pam I'll have to check (the book is at home and I am at work) but I think it is 6mm needles and about 300 stitches.

I wish I could knit but I end up looking like a pretzel. I get tensed up, my shoulders are up to my ears, fingers get tangled in the yarn, my eyeballs are darting from the pattern to the knitting, and my tongue is sticking out of my mouth.🤑 I can crochet but knitting is beyond me.

Well, Nettie, I can knit but can't crochet. That has been a source for sorrow for me. I really admire people that can do both and they can cross stitch!

I ordered my first pair of circular needles today. I paid less than 5.00 dollars so if I just get tangled up in them, out they will go with yesterday's trash. So used to knitting in strips.
