'Can you knit, Granny?'
'Of course Granny can't knit!' Daughter exclaimed.
'Excuse me, I can,' I said.
'Can you do this then?' GrandDaughter thrust a Learn to Knit kit in my hand. 'I really really want that handbag,' she added, pointing to the bag illustrated on the front of the kit.
'Course I can.'
So, after reading the instructions - just to remind myself! - I cast on 30 stitches as instructed. Then it said to knit 100 rows. That sounded simple enough.
Now I'm not sure if I misunderstood the instructions but, after about 10 rows, I decided I was wrapping the wool the wrong way around the needle. I changed it - and it didn't seem to make any difference to the appearance - and it felt better.
I am doing rather well I have to say and I am rather pleased with myself, but now, however, I find myself with two problems.
1) I have no idea how many rows I've done.
2) I don't know how to join in another ball of wool.
