A couple months ago I started knitting on Size 8, 32 in. long circular knitting needles for no apparent reason other than the desire to try out these needles. I couldn't wrap my mind around knitting in the round (all in good time I say), so I have just been going back and forth in stockinette. As of now I have a peice that is 34 in. wide and 19in. long. I would post a photo, but I don't have a digital camera. In any case, I'm probably going to keep knitting it until in reaches a desired length and just call it a shawl, but I was wondering if you guys might have some ideas or tips for this lowly beginner as to what i could do with this peice-in-progress.
Also, what sort of blocking techniques would you suggest for something once it's off the needles? Or is it too soon to think about that?
On a side note, I watched Frost/Nixon last night as part of my Thursday-night-movie-watching-ritual and highly reccomend it if you haven't seen it.
Pax et bonum,
