knit 2 purl 2

I feel like I need to scream this from the mountain tops:  I DID IT!

Remember when I drove from my hometown to Austin [6 hours] and tried and tried and tried to learn to knit 2 purl 2 and kept failing? Well, it finally happened. 

During the snowpocolypse that hit Texas last week I had plenty of time to give it another shot. This time I used Elise’s video to guide me and something totally clicked.

I knit like a furious woman to keep my hands warm and my head in the game. Eventually the movements became natural and after a few days of working on it in the evenings, I had my second scarf.

I wore it to school on Thursday and the first thing my students asked as they shook my hand when they walked into our classroom was: “Did you make that??”

Yes! Yes, I did.
