A light bulb turned on!

I am knitting away and liking it more and more with each stitch. However, my work is REALLY TIGHT!  I know I might be a tad stressed out but I don't think I need to grunt when trying to migrate the yarn from one needle to the other.

One thing I did notice - I seem to be knitting very close to the ends of the needles:

I may not be pulling the thread too tight, but I'm working on the smallest part of the needle. What was also happening is that since I was working so far down the needle, I had all this extra needle. So I ended up holding the needle in my arm pit. DUH!!!!  Always have something to learn.  What I did for the next row was work further down the needle. Bah bah bah bah (imagine a trumpet)!!!

I completed the row and the stitches were a lot more 'pliable'. Very workable. 

Funny - as I was basking in my glory, I noticed something wrong.  I think I may have dropped a stitch. I went back three stitches and fixed it. I'm on a high!!  Quite happy here.... to my 6 followers.

  1. Hilarious!
    I love your wooden needles (even if they don't have eyes...ha ha). I think it would be very satisfying to feel them working against each other...
