Right, so what the world needs is another knitting blog. Still, knitting is what I do. I actually had a moment of unreality the other day. I was sitting on the couch knitting a cabled hat, and I looked down at it in wonder. “When did I learn how to do this?” I thought. The answer is simple. I first picked up knitting needles in the fall of 2005. I was terrible at it and remained terrible at it until about August of 2008. I unfortunately made numerous hand-crafted gifts during this period, which I sincerely hope were burned by the recipients. As to what changed in August of ’08, I started using Ravelry seriously, which can be quite the game changer. I am now a self-described hardcore knitter.
Anyway, hello and welcome. General knit chat is soon to follow. I’ll be sharing WIPs, FOs, etc.
