4 months and 6 lbs. of wool later...

I finally finished the Elizabeth Zimmerman "Knitted Garter Stitch Blanket" for my new livingroom. Just over 6 pounds of Lion Brand "Fisherman's Wool" with 2 strands held together on size 15s.

Adventures at Romni

About a week ago I was in Toronto for work and Dennis (aka Chipsir) was kind enough to direct me to Romni Wools where he works a few days each week.

Dear Men Who Knit Diary:

Today, I was broadsided by a snot-nosed idiot on the subway as I knitted up the sleeve on the sweater I'm currently working on.

My First Completed Project

I finally finished my first scarf. Just a basic k2p2 pattern, but I'm happy with it. I just started knitting a month ago and can't get enough. I'm inspired by many of the projects on this site.

First Start Always Ends Up Being Taken Apart.

So, every time I start a new project, I end up pulling the whole thing apart. Sometimes it is just once; more often, it is two or three times.
