Congratulations Roberta!

Posted on Jun 23, 2005. 0 comments

Roberta got a really impressive Grad Student Fellowship doing exactly what it is she wants to do! I am so happy and proud of her, for pursuing her interests when she could have easily settled for something that isn't right for her. She is so talented, and such a great person she deserves it!
I won't feel sorry for myself when she starts working full time in July and can't knit during the week.

A Few Things I've learned (From a Newbie Perspective) Have you heard the saying Necessity is the Mother of Invention? I keep losing the #$%^&*@! super small diameter crochet hooks I use on socks so I taught myself how to pick up dropped stitches sans crochet hooks.
If I've dropped a knit stitch, I'll place the dropped stitch on the right needle, followed by the horizontal yarn that made up the dropped stitch.
Next, I pass the dropped stitch over the horizontal yarn just like when passing a slipped stitch over, or binding off.
Also when I have to tink back, I stick the right needle in the stitch below the stitch to be tinked. That way I can avoid dropped stitches. It seems to go faster, too.
I've also learned to trust myself when knitting lace. I tinked back the same row three times because I felt like moving a stitch marker to finish a SSSK meant I had made a mistake somewhere. Be Fearless!
In closing, Mike impressively used his super spidey sense the other day. I had just opened up the Knit Happens website to peruse the Sale. At that exact moment he asked to read my blog.

The moral of this story is, I made a few *ahem* tipsy purchases.
