My kniting friends I became friendly with this girl Andrea from my Purl class, after the class ended. We've been emailing back and forth, trying to work out some time to get together and knit. We keep meaning to check out the Stitch n Bitch at the Java and Jazz Cafe (Tuesday from 7-9 pm) but for the last two weeks something or another has come up for both of us. There's an Avon Knitting Circle that meets every Wednesday in the Law Library. It's organized by this woman Beth who was described to me as a master knitter. I had seen her around tons of times but never knew who she was before. I've only been to one of the circles so far. Beth helped me fix some weird thing I did with Josh's alpaca scarf and she also helped me put the green/blue Dad hat back on the needles after I ripped out a couple of rows. (Tip Time: She suggested I use a smaller size to put them back on. She also suggested casting on with a larger needle.) She was very impressed with the work I did on the hat and said I'm a really good, consistent knitter. She says my stitches are really even. That makes me feel so good because I feel like I'm such a slob in most aspects of my life, even sewing. This woman Rebecca Hartranft from Urban Knitter says I'm what her knitting partner calls a "freaky knitter" because I have become so utterly absorbed in knitting. I read knitting magazines, started buying books, checking out web sites, trolling message boards. I really hope this doesn't turn into another short-term hobby like the soap making. Yarn Lemming, to borrow a term from Makeup Alley -I told Josh I would make him a hat out of this cool black and grey Noro. Need to pick that up at Yarn Co. -This Cotton Tape Yarn looks neat. -Cotton to make some baby hats -Rowan Biggie Print. Andrea used this to make a scarf. Only thing is it requires size 30 needles! I'll have to ask to borrow hers.
