Short Update

First I would like to thank Amby and Dana for their kind comments on my last entry. I definitely felt good to get my feelings about my mom out in the open.



This is my process on my Clapotis. It was a rough start. I actually made that progress yesterday and today so I am pretty proud of myself. There is a hole and the edges are wonky but hopefully blocking will help the edges and I can fix the hole. This yarn (Rowan Felted Tweed) breaks very easily which is hard on a tight knitter like myself. I am liking the pattern and will like to make another one in a better yarn someday. Until next time ....

That's great progress - and yes, blocking will fix a multitude of problems. Hope you can figure out how to relax your knitting a bit - it'll pay off, and not just with this yarn. I'm sure your mom's spirit is cheering you on too.

your clap is looking great so far. yea, learning to loosen/relax your knitting will help too. and i read about your mom in your last entry... with this winter olympics may you continue cherishing the fond memories you and your mom had with the olympics... *hugs* =)

Unfortunetly I am just a tight knitter. no matter what I try my tension is always tight. But I have managed to not break the yarn again - knock on wood
