Making sure my knitting is on track

I have been knitting for almost a year now and my passion and excitement for this wonderful activity has not fluctuated in the least. When you have a wonderful teacher such as Miko, you have all of the ingredients that you should need to keep on going.

I took up knitting to try and improve my patience and I can tell you that it has worked.  At first I thought that a blind person would not be able to knit but this is not true.  I have friends who are blind and who knit.

I have had some challenging days as we move forward.  Problems with not knitting the same stitch twice, dropping stitches, and making sure that I always keep my working yarn in the right place.

I started with the larger needles and the thicker yarn but now I have moved on to the thinner yarn and smaller needles.  It is my hope that before long I'll start to knit bunnies for babies.  This is my first project and now I just have to learn to be consistent.

I have invested in a handbook for knitters in Braille along with a needle master kit.  Hopefully this will encourage me to keep on knitting.

I'm Donna J. Jodhan, your friendly accessibility advocate, wishing you a terrific day.
