Well, I received my knitting board. It’s just like they described. The only thing it’s a little heavy, but I love it. I already learned the stockinette stitch and yes it is nice and thick. I want to do more designer stitches so I am going through the book step by step. I am using the new book “Knitting Board Basics”. I got it for a $1 when I joined Crafters Choice book club.
I am doing several projects. I have a sweater that I am trying to complete front and back panels. I am also involved in a charity project. I have to make 10 8x8 squares to make a special afghan as a donation. I have a pair of socks knitted half way which is really annoying. Maybe the pattern was boring. I think I am going to frog it and think of something else in the future to make with it.
Since receiving my knitting board, I need to make a carrying case for it. So as soon as my friend Juana gets a hot minute she will take me to the fabric store. I want to buy some black canvas material, possibly quilted and sew up a long wide tube with a long strap. I am thinking of a drawstring at the top. I joined granny squares that I had in my mom’s basement for years. I think I can sew it onto the canvas as a cover when I finish the bag. So much to do and so little time.
