... Kicked my butt!
I've never done it before and I heard about it all the time - what magic it would do with the toe for a sock or just want to have live stitches to knit the other half of the stole, etc.
Well, Moondance required a provisional cast on, so I decided to give it a try tonight. But it just wasn't working! It turns out that I was using the wrong yarn to start - I had this lace weight yarn Archiknist gave me to try so I was using that for the crochet chain. Instead, Archiknist suggested to use a thick yarn and Judy gave me some for use. An hour later after I started, I have this:
It's not much (only the cast on row and the first row) but I am feeling quite tired after squinting and finding the loops for cast on for an whole hour. I'm thinking I might have to break my own rules and cast on another project for mindless knitting... Just a thought.
Oh, and I think I want to learn Tatting. (Among spinning and dying and all the other fiber-y things I want to do).
