First meetings warrant introductions.
Hi! I'm Matt, and I've been knitting for just under 2 months.
I've done the prerequisite beginner scarves, two in fact. The black & white one was the first, total garter stitch and looks much better against my pea coat than against the couch. The red one was 2x2 rib and my mother currently has it.
My current project is a top-down v-neck from knittingpureandsimple. I have about 10 more inches on the body before I start the sleeves.
I'm really enjoying knitting so far, it's so nice and relaxing to curl up with it after work.
The other particulars about me: I'm 36, have 2 cats, live in northern California, have a full time job and am going to grad school. Sanity? What's that? In my spare time (hah!) I bake, cross-stitch and read.
Pleasure to meet you. :-]
