August was my first hosted knit-a-long with my second shawl design. I had imaged lots of happy knitters. But as I knitted along with everyone, I found I had edited out a section of the pattern and there were things people questioned. The biggest question was is right side, right or wrong side…well it changes.

I’m glad I kept my pattern note cards. They saved me invaluable time but I did rip and re-knit sections repeatedly to make sure things were right. I’m glad I tried yet I was embarrassed. But I have to remind myself this is something I love, it is fun for me and I’m learning.

The knitter that joined the knit-a-long were so nice and encouraging. It made me work harder to get it right.
