Last week was my first knitting class. She showed me how to cast on a knit. So I knitted a good bit. I was pretty sure it wasn't very good because it kept getting bigger. I started with 24 stitches for the width. Then it was 27. Then it was 29. When I noticed it was 29, I just knitted a couple of strands at a time until it was 27 again.
The teacher pulled all of it off, even the stitches I'd cast on. I don't do it wrong on purpose, but I don't seem very good at it. My standards aren't very high, either. I thought about pulling the stitches out, but I didn't think I could get the needle back in.
This may be an inexpensive hobby...I'll just keep knitting the same skein of yarn over and over. At least I bought brown. It shouldn't show dirt as I knit it over and over.
