Yesterday I met up for coffee with Joy, one of the knitting ladies I met the other night. She kindly said she would teach me a new stitch - purl - so I met her at the Starbucks at Ark Hills for a coffee and a knit, as you do! Not sure what the other people around us thought, but then there are always strange things going on here. The woman opposite us, smartly dressed, was having a quiet snooze! Joy was very patient with me as I sat there, tongue out and heavy concentration, as my claw hands formed the first few new stitches. I now know how to purl and the "scarf" has come on leaps and bounds, if a tad wobbly at the sides. See pic.
PS I think Neil is getting a bit worried about my knitting addiction!
