Slip Knot of Love

I'm sorry for the absence. I hate posting without any pictures to share and I've been doing badly lately. It's left me confined to the bed for most of my free time. It drives me crazy to the point I've even tried to learn how to knit. I've messed up and am hoping I can get some guidance from a friendly local shop on how to fix it. Those who are experienced might be able to see what I've done in the close up. I was happy with how far I'd come and my hand slipped which took off several of the loops instead of just one. I ended up pulling too hard on the yarn and part of the previous row came undone. I'm too inexperienced to figure out how to fix it. I've been wanting to learn how to do this for awhile now so although I've not been doing well, I'm glad it's given me the opportunity to finally get around to this. I'm hoping to incorporate the knitted textile into some jewelry pieces. I think it could make for some really interesting pieces. Besides, it's that time of year. The weather here is cooling off and I love nothing more than bundling up in soft knits made of comfy yarns. Don't you? Knitting can always add such amazing detail and texture to an outfit for me.

"Knit your hearts 
with an unslipping knot."
