Knitting My Yarn into Knots

So I tried to teach myself to knit last night. I can cast on fine. But when I got to the knitting part (both English and Continental)I simply COULD NOT do it! The loops kept falling off. If I did manage to transfer one loop from one needle to the other, it didn’t look like a stitch. It looked like a tangled mess. Thing is, I can’t tell if this is the part where I just do it over and over hundreds of times, or if I’m actually doing it wrong. I’m wondering if I need to find someone to walk me through it.



Keep a Gratitude Journal for 30 Days (read all 2 entries…)
3 Days In

I’ve done the Gratitude Journal for three days now, and I am enjoying it. Already I am noticing more things throughout my day to appreciate.



Read Erica Jong's Top 100 Twentieth Century Novels by Women
"Well of Lonliness" is one of my favorite books.

I love this goal. I have read several of the books already, but I will reread them for fun, and for the spirit of the goal. Thank you for leading me to this, nealcassady.
