Honey Cowl is finished. I used the two skeins of Malabrigo Silky Merino that my Future Sister In Law gave me for Christmas. The two colorways played well together I think. I alternated them every two rows. I actually used a bit more of the lighter blue but for some reason have more of it left. That's a little odd as the skeins should've been the same yardage.
Either way, the cowl is oh so soft and I own shirts in pretty much every color that shows up in it so I can wear it with just about anything. Hopefully this warm spell will pass over soon so I can actually wear it. It took a little longer to make than I wanted, mostly because I assumed row 4 was the exact same as row 2 and it's not so I had to start over when I was already about 3-4" in.
I believe the socks are next up on my list. The cowl was a very simple knit and I need something to work my brain a bit before casting on for an all knit hat or really long ribbed scarf.
Oh! And I finished it in January! I started it and finished it in the same month! Score one point for averaging one finished project per month!
This is my attempt at a blog. I've been journaling for many, many years (nearly 9 years to be exact) on livejournal. But that's a personal life blog that nobody cares to read but my most devoted (or bored) friends.
This blog will be about my knitting. And my crocheting. I am by no means some sort of yarn maven or guru. This is more for documentation. I want to keep track of my journey from novice (omgwtf you want me to do WHAT with that cable needle?) to the aforementioned guru (or at least pretty decent). I will post pictures of my accomplishments and failures and ask (probably beg and plead) for help and possibly be able to offer my own tips and tricks eventually.
For the basics, I'm 25, I live in Southwest VA and I spend pretty much most of my free time obsessing over knitting. And hanging out with my fantabulous boyfriend, Kevin (he's crafty in his own way, he makes his own beer). We have 3 cats and travel pretty much any chance we get.
