Arthriticky fingers that won't work are driving me nuts.. Plus, I have to make it difficult by wanting the knit and purl to be different colours. Knit two one colour, purl two the other colour. Vertical stripes...if you see what I mean?
I showed Mother what I was attempting to make (total useless pile of rubbish so far) and she showed me HER way (it looks cool, but for the love of God, can I remember what she did!!) but she has a 'made up her own' knitting technique......plus she's left handed. I seem to remember as a kid that I sat opposite her while she knitted and copied. But I still don't knit like 'normal' knitters. I knit right to left and purl left to right. I don't turn my work round for the purl bit. No wonder I had more success with crocheting! lol
I may be a while with this project. Just in time for winter. lol
