Way to Go!

These were knit by my lovely friend, Pam. Pam learned to knit about 6 months ago, and this is her *first* sweater. She did an absolutely amazing job, because that’s the kind of person Pam is. She’s my girl scouts co-leader, runs her own business, fabulous wife and mother of 2 young ‘uns. Pam is one of those great people you meet who just “gets it.” After taking beginning knitting, she was off and running, knitting caps and scarves. About a month ago, I was working on the One Cable Scarf from One Skein. While we were at the soccer field for our Sweetie Girls’ practice, I quickly showed her how I slipped the stitches for a cable. She went home and tried it out on her own, and voila! Cables! Two weeks ago, she told me she was ready to move on to a more challenging project. I lent her The Yarn Girls Guide to Kid Knits, and one week later she showed me this sweater. Wow! While she says I inspired her to learn to knit, I am awed by her innate ability. Seems she was born to knit. I am so proud of Pam. Won’t you join me in giving her a hand?
