What's a knit without a purl?

I'm learning to knit!
I seem to have the knit part down, but the purl is giving me FITS! I struggled to get this much done last night just by looking through one of those teach-yourself-to-knit books. Struggled is about all I did. Today I got a lesson from Vicky, knitter extrodinaire. The best part was a wonderful technique for finishing the edges so nicely. I can't even explain it - I slip the end stitch from one hook to the other before beginning the row of knitting. It looks really sharp that way.


She's a wonderful teacher and I learned more than my brain can handle. Knitting is not for sissies! :)

Time for a glass (read: bottle) of wine.
