When The Sun Don't Shine...

I've started the long "learning to purl" slog again -- hence there is nothing to show this evening because I didn't want to take a picture of the results. I've almost got it, but I do something on my knit stitch that makes it even and loose, and I'm not doing whatever that is when I purl which makes it really... really... tight and the next row is just painful to get through. So yeah. I'll get there. Maybe.

In the meantime, I got my birthday present. The cats are currently shredding the big block of styrofoam it came packaged in, which is fun for them but going to be a nightmare to clean up. But isn't this thing awesome? It's solar powered, so the light is on at night.

All I can say is that there are worse addictions than garden gnomes. So there.


It's Holidailies time! Now go read some other blogs!

In your purl try wrapping the yarn the other way from how you're currently doing it. I had the same problem but this fixed it for me.

I think part of the problem is that I may be holding everything the wrong way when I knit -- so it works great for that but makes it impossible to purl. I might have to go back and unlearn some things so I can start doing everything correctly.
