A great big thankyou and some practicing

First of all, I would like to say a great big thankyou to everyone who left me a message regarding my Friday night post......

The fantastic thing is that most generous crafty peeps are already registered as organ donors and those who weren't have now signed up online. Thankyou from the bottom of my heart (and lungs). I've been laughing to myself all weekend imaging what my oxygen bottle would look like with a knitted or crocheted cover.....hilarious!

I've been practicing my knitting over the last week....I used some of the yarn that Cath sent me and I practiced changing colour, leaving the ends loose, knitting the ends in, and using 2 colours at once. It was fun to see what happened without worrying about wrecking something. I even remembered how to cast off and I didn't have to refer to the internet for help.....yippee!

I'm off to the post office now to post three little parcels.....I can't reveal anything yet. Have a happy Monday.

How do you knit the ends in? I knitted a scarf with 3 colours once, and "lost the ends" in the scarf but they started coming out and now it looks a bit ratty :P

That's great that you posted about organ donation - as a med student I see a lot of people who are on a very long waiting list so there is definitely a need for more donors! And I think you should crochet or knit up an oxygen bottle cover - it would look so pretty! :D

Hey Mill,
I just kept knitting until the ends disappeared but the same thing will probably happen (ends will come out)...I'm just learning through trial and error!
