I took a little time over the snow storm to teach a couple of friends to knit. What snowstorms are good for: hot chocolate, a fire in the fireplace and joyful knitting. See DeVeria’s beautiful garter stitch, careful and even, until she became tired. Her work exhibits the beginners nemesis, the dastardly last stitch! It becomes bold and large, befuddling the knitter, who often becomes anxious and fatigued as a result. Be the boss of that stitch! Anticipate its devious desire and modestly stitch it. If its devilry persists, yank it into shape!
