Machine knitting for 25 days has really been great for me in I became more comfortable with my machine. I gained a lot of confidence. I'm more familar where the yarn is and where the needles are when I'm in a pattern. In the past if I lost my concentration for any reason I would wonder where I was in the pattern. Now I know.
Today's pattern is Diana's Bulky Lined Slipper. I've had to stop in mid pattern for phone calls and such. First time I got back I thought "OH NO did I put the needle out or not." I calmed down and said let's think about this. Yarn is wrapped around this needle so yes indeed needle is out and I'm ready to knit a row.
I'm not saying I don't have more to learn, but I like Diana's idea about doing a little knitting everyday. If not every day don't let too many days go by without doing something on your knitting machine.
