I'm actually already halfway finished with my newest project - a throw whose pattern I found in a pattern booklet : Afghan Medley to knit.
I started the hat to go with my Irish Hiking Scarf. I've been a little busy around the house so haven't worked on it as much as I'd like, but I think it's coming along ok for my first hat.
This past weekend, I made a trip to our local library to try and find some knitting resources. To my surprise, I found a great little "gem" amongst the collection.
