Money is really tight right now for my family – the cost of things going up and the hours of work are getting less…. we all have the same story and we all are suffering in one way or another. But it is never easy when you let your eyes wander on the internet and they fall upon something that you REALLY WANT!
Here is what my eyes found:
Oh, these are just the cat’s meow! I must leave several hints around for my adult children or my dear husband to get this for me for my birthday or Mother’s Day! I must start my campaign soon!!!!!
I spent all of last night trying to learn Cat Bordhi’s mobeius cast on so I can knit the magical mobeius.
I want to tell you, I felt as frustrated and anxious as I did the first time my Mom taught me to knit! I don’t hold my knitting anything like Cat does and so I had to teach myself to hold the wool and needles like she did in the video. I pulled it out 3 times. I changed wool from worsted to bulky so I could see what I was doing. I also changed needles to 13 so my anxious fingers had something big to grip onto! I played the video over and over and over again. I ALMOST gave up, BUT I did not !!!! It isn’t pretty what I have done, but I do see as I continue to mobeius on and on that it is getting better. The cast on and knitting the cast on row is definately the hardest part of the whole process! I just about wanted to cry. But now that I am going round and round and see it starting to take shape……. it is awesome! I will take a picture of what I have knit so far and show it tomorrow. You CAN teach old dogs new tricks….. it just takes a lot longer!!!!
