Purl and Plain
So my mom showed me how to do the two basic knitting stitches, plain and purl, the other day, and how to cast on, to start a knitting project. I think it's pretty straightforward, and I now have a scarf about a foot wide and an inch long. It's my third attempt, after messing up and having to pull it all apart and start over again. This time, though, I think it's working. So if I knit about an inch a day, I should have it done in a couple of weeks. Whether it will be wearable remains to be seen, but it will be a scarf and I will have knitted it. And that will be something else off my list.
