My friend, Jolie, hosted a delightful knitting party last weekend.
Most of us being novices, she taught us the basics and we all walked away with a lovely dishcloth.
I'll admit, mine was not as square as it was supposed to be.
Although I've knit some, Jolie uses a entirely different technique...I had to do a whole hand-switch-around thing.
I think I like this new way of knitting better though...it seems quite a bit faster!
I brought some themed cookies...actually the first I've made since I've been back in the US.
Yes, yes...they're a bit sloppy, but I think I was distracted by this view out my apartment window.
(Don't be too jealous.)
