A year ago a friend's boyfriend at the time, Sean Riley of Boston, gave me a lesson in knitting and I haven't stopped yet (except for 2 months in the hospital mostly in a coma). I've actually surprised myself that I've haven't lost interest. There seems to be something very compelling about knitting that I just can't say for many of the other endeavors that I've started over the years and that have dropped by the wayside. And it's not that I've completed anything that could possibly be called a garment (this puts me in the category of a process knitter). I'm doing mostly socks at the time (single socks, although I did complete what could pass as a pair if one doesn't look too closely). I also make many swatches of new stitches I want to try out.
It seems like there's more than enough to keep me interested in knitting for the rest of my life; always a challenge. Somewhere in my future I imagine a sweater and some colorwork, also a lace shawl.
looking forward to my second year of knitting,
