Rate of acquisition can be used to describe many things…yarn, pattern comprehension, verbal skills. Owen has mastered 2 new phrases quite quickly–"Go away!" and "Move!". My rate of acquisition on yarn has been quite low. I feel as though I am doing a pretty good job knitting what I have. I can’t say I am "knitting through the stash" as I am not knitting all that much and therefore–not using much stash! But what I am knitting is stash. Except for bracelets. And I recently acquired quite a few spools of kreinik to knit more. (30 spools via eBay)
As far as pattern acquistion, I am 10 rows forward 2 rows back. Row 39, especially is killing me. I get all set on the repeat and forget to do the middle/end chart. Sometimes I am able to drop down and fix it. Other times it just comes off the needles for a little ripping.
Tomorrow presents an opportunity to acquire yarn at a greatly discounted price. Granny and I are going to Knitting Fever to see the new yarns. This is kind of exciting…better than the rep coming to us.
