(i guess ive been wound a little to tight since my deployment) but any who yea calming hobby it was suggested that i try knitting which made me laugh because i had already been looking in to taking up knitting as a hobby.

Had a most frustrating evening last night. I finally made it to the toe of the sock I've been struggling to finish, trying it on to check the fit.

Then, taking it off, the cast on edge snapped.

Not figuring out any way to repair it, I frogged almost 2 1/2 months of intermittent knitting; washed the resulting skein, and plan to rewind it so as to start all over again.

First Sweater

I have been lurking around this site for a while now. Have just started my first sweater and decided it was time to post. Past knitting has consisted of socks, hats, cowls and scarfs. All projects that are relatively quick to knit up.
