I just can't leave well enough alone. I kept browsing through Ravelry patterns for wedding shawls and found one that I had fallen in love with before but forgot about. The Hanami is beautiful and delicate and I think it's the one! Naturally I didn't order enough yarn for that pattern so back off to the Loopy Ewe I went to get yarn for Hanami. It took awhile for me to pick out a yarn. I browsed Loopy and Knit Picks and kept waffling between getting purple, a neutral or a wacky color. That stole is so pretty in any color it made it difficult to decide. In the end I decided on Dream In Color It's Natural Purple Rain. It better be worth the price. Now I have to wait even longer to get my yarn to start my shawl. I hope I can actually knit this thing in 4 months. It looks kinda big.
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.
