The good news is that I am making progress on some knitting. I have taken the advice from Principles of Knitting, and I'm holding the yarn in my left hand and teaching it to knit. Still Light is the perfect project to learn a new knitting style as there are acres and acres of stocking stitch to just pootle my way through. Repetition is the only way with learning a new skill. It's amazing that after three weeks it's finally starting to feel fairly natural.
I've now embarked on the second part of this endeavour, which is to learn to purl with the yarn held in my left hand. I watched this excellent tutorial by Rox, and now it's just a case of more and more practice.
I've now split the sleeves from the body of my Still Light dress, so it should give the impression of going a bit faster now as there are many fewer stitches in each round. It is going to be a while until I can wear it though!
I've spent much of the last week or so keeping my Gran company in London, so it has been lovely to just knit round and round on this.
