I'm going on a fast, starting tomorrow. If past experiences are any indicator, about halfway during the week I'll have excessive energy and little need for sleep. This seems like a great opportunity to do more knitting!
Fasting is a great experience, but the first few days can be a bit rough. I anticipate knitting being particularly centering this week. I also look forward to the sense of accomplishment I'll feel when my scarf is completed this week, an event which will be chronicled both here and in my fasting blog.
darn it, I just lost my first entry. chock-full of witticism, it was. here's the truncated synopsis:
I'm a new knitter, just started a scant month ago. my dear friend Betsy taught me.
I'm three hats and one scarf (that needs its ends woven in) down. I've just started swatches for a sweater.
I hosted a very enjoyable evening of food, wine, and knitting last night. Good company, good conversation, and educational; I learned I was purling incorrectly! The result, however, is interesting... the forthcoming photos of the back-side of the camo scarf will illustrate.
It was nice to share stories about our history with needlework and the responses we get when people see us knitting in public. I hope this becomes a regular thing... what a great way to spend an evening!
So here I finally have a couple of pics of my current project. The yarn is really nice because of the color variations. I too have been purling incorrectly, so I am VERY curious as to what this bastardized mystery stich is! It's been a lot of fun to see this project grow. I'm almost done with the ball of yarn, and it's just been over 48 hours!
Yeah,I know really lame. Just wanted to talk about the fact that I cast on
for a scarf myself this morning and it's based on the Dr. Who
Also have a few caps on the needles,planning some other scarves for family Christmas presents,and braining on some sox made of cashmere yarn. Any thoughts?
Here are a couple of pictures of my first project. My dexterity and understanding of the interplay between stitches has improved a lot since beginning and rows are being finished faster and faster!
