Yes this is finally an update on my knitting! And with nearly two balls of wool down I think I can say with confidence that I can officially purl. There's been a mishap or two. One day I was frustrated with unrelated issues and ended up dropping stitches and pulling out rows everywhere. When I finally managed to pick everything up again (took me two days) it still didn't end up quite right, but no one will ever notice - it will just annoy ME forever. Have to remember knitting isn't something I can just do without concentrating on like I do with cross stitch quite yet!
