Come craft together, they said, whatever your project type. It’ll be fun!

It was, too.

But (bifocals notwithstanding) I knit with my glasses off to see up close but I left them on so I could lipread and found out that tiny stitches and slippery silk and having to count and not being able to entirely see what I’m doing while I’m paying attention to someone else…

meant I went home and slowly carefully painstakingly stitch by snaggy stitch ripped out every single thing I’d done there because there was just no rescuing being off by that much that far down and across–and boy did that yarn want to run.

But we had a good time. Next time I’ll bring something brainless and wool on size 7s.

Sounds like fun, frogging notwithstanding. Wish there was something like that near me. Still getting settled.

Ooh, yeah, have to chose a project that works as social knitting! But I’m glad you had fun anyway.

My social knitting is generally cotton dishcloths.
Brainless, never have too many, use as gifts, if I screw it up my dishes don’t care lol
I’d rather have the fun of talking and laughing and maybe snacking without the stress.

I hear you. This is why I can’t be a monogamous knitter – one needs a project for each type of situation. These days I try to limit it to 3 or 4 projects going at once.
