The girls have been teaching me to knit. Actually, I taught them to knit long ago, and now they are re-teaching me. We started with an easy project — a shawl using just the knit stitch.

I’m using Alpaca Boucle which is 90% alpaca and 10% nylon.

I’m going to need a couple more skeins of yarn to finish.

Is it long enough yet?

Are any of our readers knitters? Where online do you buy your yarn? I’m especially looking for natural fibers. I’d also like to know why some people use the continental method of knitting as opposed to the English method. Laurie
