i did one practice knitting swatch. with some really fat yarn and #7 needles. then i decided to plunge into my scarf project. with very tiny yarn and a #5 needle. it already went wrong in the first row. i don't wanna practice anymore, i wanna MAKE something already!!! but it's clear that i have to pratice or i will wreck my beautiful rainbow yarn before i even begin. this makes me sad. i just wanna be good at it. now, now, NOW!! on a brighter note, monica did a great job of teaching me to cast on and off and to do the knit stitch. it's more about needing to practice with yarn that's similar to what i will use, as the feel of the yarn can make a huge difference! or so it seems.
