2007 August Mid Month KAL - Day 1

I should have added the days instruction here so if you didn't receive the email, for whatever reason, you would be able to get the rows for today. I will add the row to this blog daily. Here are Days 1;

Well I bet you thought I forgot...didn't make it to bed tonight at a decent hour so I WILL be sleeping in folks. I am nursing a patient back to health and he was having a rough night.Our second KAL of the month, for those new knitters who joined recently, is a KAL where we learn a new technique, a new stitch or something to stretch our skills. Some of the knitting pro's in our group can help with anyone who feels they are struggling with this one.There are resources on the Internet as well, some for your information

    Those links were great! I'm new to knitting and am always on the lookout for sites to help me. I wanted to pass along a website I found that has several basic how to videos that give knitting tips. I'm not sure if you're interested in how to videos, but I found these useful when I was just starting out.
