I had a chance to knit up 6 donuts, in between my big project, with different size needles, and really enjoyed knitting them all. I learned a few new techniques as I was knitting them. I like to make the same pattern (if it is small enough) with different yarns, or size needles to see the end results, and to compare my work from the first to the last. I take pictures of anything I knit for my personal Port-Folio, so I can easily review my progress and yarn details and any other info I accumulated during these knitting sessions. There is so much more than just knit and purl.... (sigh...). I am learning a lot of it by knitting Jean Greenhowe's patterns.
