Shannon came over last weekend to help me out with an introductory knitting lesson. It didn’t go all that well; but I have hope for next time. I’m overdue for new contacts/glasses so that probably didn’t help. Being able to see the little loops and yarn is a convenient bonus! Shannon, on the other hand, is a knitting whiz. Mostly I just want to learn how to knit socks. And a little cozy for my notebook computer. Click the image to see a larger photograph and a better view of Shannon and the hat-in-progress.
