Getting Started

KnitOne has been knitting since her teens and is a fearless knitter. She will try anything. PurlToo (me) has been knitting for 6 years and was stuck on circular sweaters from the top down with no seaming. Hardly fearless. KnitOne has inspired me to try all sorts of things. Currently we are working with beads. Opening a bag of beads and rolling them around in my hands makes me feel rich. Looking at all the colors dazzles me. I have chosen to use larger beads with larger holes in random patterns while KnitOne uses seed beads and has to design her patterns and then string the beads backwards to make the pattern work. KnitOne is the clever one. I'm blessed with her friendship and I learn so much from her.
