I picked up knitting again during Hurricane Ike. There are only a few of things you can do by candlelight while awake, and I, for one, got tired of playing with my candle.
I finally finished my first project, a beanie (london beanie) that I found on the net. After taking it on a plane and knitting a week, HA!
I'm not sure if I smuggled my knitting into the airport, or they actually allowed #6 circular needles. I'm going with smuggled, it sounds more bad-ass.

Punkfairy came up with an awesome suggestion for a knitting project: a pair of boxers or briefs. I think I shall research on making one as a hat.
Here's my first project that I haven't abandoned yet. I got it from a how-to book as one of the first projects when I was reading up on knitting.
Hi! I'm new and I'm glad I found this site. How are you guys doing?
