Knitting in overdrive

I knitted in overdrive today, we needed to make mileage. Check the result below – clearly this is a sheep in the making, no? I’m planning at least one lamb to go with it, which means knitting at the weekend, too. Fortunatly the people from Humana gave us a lot of T-shirts to play with!

I learned the German way to knit from a little old lady that tuttuttutted me about my knitting style. ┬áSo I’m an international knitter now, adept at using both the left and the right hand to hold the yarn. Very good for preventing RSI! !

In the afternoon we did another al-fresco knitting session with the kids – I’m accepted in their little community now as the knitting teacher. Kids started to ask my permission to go to the bathroom, which I take as a positive comment on my teaching style.

The Big Knit smells cottony and is lovely to touch. I keep stroking it and so does almost everyone that stops by. As an added bonus, the exercise of knitting gives me an extra eye for texture – witness the pic below. Being a well-behaved girl, I did manage to keep my hands off , but with difficulty.
