Double Point Delirium

I'm in!! Oh ya...I can do it!!! I've got double point delirium!!! I have so wanted to try and knit with double points. I really don't have anyone that can teach me so I'm on my own. The web site Knittinghelp was just what I needed to show me the basics. I also had a few others urging me on from Ravelry. So Wednesday night I got online to watch the video and the network kept stalling. I just kept trying. I had to rip the first inch and start all over but I did get it. I have knitted 2.5 inches of the ribbing for the Hot Waffle Mitts. I can't even begin to express how excited I am to learn a new skill!!!

The yarn I am using is a super soft "Misti Alpaca" worsted weight. I am using size 5 needles. The color of the yarn is the most perfect shade of periwinkle blue. This yarn is sensational!! I can't wait to get my mitts on these Mitts!!!!

Way to go! Knitting in the round is one of the most useful skills I ever learned. I had to figure it out on my own too.
