Knitting two projects at once is nice when one project is boring (Honey Cowl) and the other is not (Helix Sock). It breaks up the monotony. But it just makes both projects just go that much slower. Which is frustrating when there are about 15 other projects that I want to get started on like, right now. But both projects are coming along just fine. I'm hoping I'll have at least one of them finished by this weekend. I'm past the heel and working on decreasing the gusset stitches on the sock and the Honey cowl is about 2/3 of the way done. I think after Honey Cowl is done I'll cast on for Kevin's Christopher hat while working on the second Helix sock. Hopefully I'll have some pictures to come this weekend.
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.
