Lessons learned

Having learned to knit six months ago and having learned nothing other than the garter stitch, and still unable or unwilling to try anything other than a scarf or cowl, I have now embarked on knitting with wire. The first lesson learned is to put more beads on because they will cover bad stitches. When I get better at wire, I can use less beads.

The next lesson is to put all the beads on the same side; it will look and feel much better in the end.

Here is my first attempt in the middle of the project . Not too good but also not terribly bad. I will get better.

Finally, there will be blood. Metal is a wee bit harder than yarn and very unforgiving. It took some time but one finger was bleeding. I switched to thinner wire and it's much better.
