... he has been assimilated. M has finished his first project from a pattern. I tried very hard with B, but she just didn't seem to allow knitting to take over her brain. M loved it from the start. On our way to B's skating dance tests today he knit Resisty's feet in the van. He finished the second foot on the way home and I sewed them in place for him..
Other than casting on, tinking here and there, rescuing a few fallen stitches and sewing on the feet, this was entirely his project. I was impressed with how quickly he took to reading a pattern, and understood increases and decreases. There was one sad incident when his bamboo dpn snapped under the finish-line excitement and stress of knitting a k2tog in stitches that were a bit too tight..
B passed her European Waltz, but missed the Keats Foxtrot by a hair. She'll retest that one at the end of April. She was very happy to be done with the European as she hates it, but felt it would have been a hollow victory if she'd passed the Keats. She felt she'd skated it horribly, possibly due to the fact that her excitement on passing the European didn't have time to fade. She says she's glad to have the opportunity to show case her best on the Keats next time..
