Honeycowl the 3rd is finished now. I cast on last Saturday, realized I was knitting a mobius and recast on Sunday, cast off last night. It's in Malabrigo teal something or another. It is absolutely gorgeous and oh so cozy. I'm a little sad that I have to give it away but I think it will be appreciated by the recipient. I got a little bored with the pattern so I didn't make it a full 12 inches wide but the pattern is flexible and it's plenty wide and long enough to double up.
I think for my next project I want to knock out a quick baby knit this weekend. We have friends that have a baby due by the end of the month and I do like welcoming a new baby with a hand knit gift. After that I'll work on more thrummed mittens for Kevin's Mom and her friend and then I'll be starting on Mom's Autumn Leaves Stole. I'm certainly not lacking for projects to keep me busy until Christmas.
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.
