Everything's just purlie keen

Ahem...I have an announcement! It is with considerable pleasure that I can announce I have finally learnt to do purl stitch!! It has taken me so long. I just couldn't get it. I watched You Tube instructional videos, read books, looked at diagrams and yet...those pretty little stitches eluded me. But on Saturday afternoon, I thought 'Right! Enough of this flummoxing around!' (or something similar). I sat down with the excellent Learn to Knit by Penny Hill, read everything very carefully and IT STILL DIDN'T WORK! I tried again and again and finally through my own befuddling about and plain and simple perserverance, I got it! I have to say I was pretty chuffed.

So I have just made this sweet little pouch for my Etsy shop. It has a pretty Australian Mookaite stone inside too.

How fantastic! Well done you! As a recent learner of knitting myself i can totally empathise with the ups and downs-and isnt it exhilarating thinking of all the makable things now with your reach!

Exactly! Suddenly I am looking at knitting patterns and...gulp...understanding them! :)
