The Pirate is knitting several rows per day, and is now producing only 1 mistake per 2 or 3 rows. We are VERY proud, especially as he is getting better and better at identifying errors quickly, so that we don't have to tink back more than a few stitches at most.

His main trouble is that he does knit very tightly, so that his main mistake tends to be that his needle slides down and he ends up knitting into the stitch below, and then drops the live stitch.

The Pirate asks how other beginning knitters manage if they do not have a resident Knitting Teacher hanging out to advise and assist them. I told him that most of us produce some very lumpy and raggedy items for the first few attempts... he, on the other hand, is repairing every mistake, so that his scarf is growing slowly but looking *very* nice.

Go, Team!

Yay!!! Heh, those first 10 scarves were pretty much a nightmare without a resident knitting teacher. :)
