Quick and Easy …Famous last words… My Mom taught me to knit when I was around 5. I like to think of myself as a competent knitter. When I am not sure of the directions, after a couple of tries I  figure it out. Well I started the “Quick and Easy!” herringbone neck warmer. I ripped it out several times. I needed to call upon a neighbor to ask for some guidance. This is how it went: “Did you ever knit the herringbone stitch?” “Yes, awhile ago.” “Would you please show me. The directions aren’t making sense.” After several tries and the darkness was creeping in we both decided to sleep on it . Just got a call..”I am on my way to the beach with needles and yarn. If you can wait till this afternoon..I should have it figured out.” I know my mother would know how to knit the stitch. Unfortunately she doesn’t have skype. Talking it out over the phone without seeing her hands would be pointless. The internet and youtube weren’t much help. WAITING
