All atwitter

I've been lurking on the web for months seeking out knitting advice, tips, patterns, ideas and such, and now here I am. The idea behind starting this blog is, of course mainly for approval and props, but also to relieve my husband of that responsibility.
It started in September with an innocent "how to knit" class and has progressed to a full time obsession. Thus far there have been 5 scarves, 2 purses, 1 pair of socks, a teensy sweater ornament, 1 pair of mittens and today I'm very excited to present my most labor intensive project to date... the pinwheel blanket!

I used 6 1/2 balls of RYC cashsoft on size 6 needles. It's yummy soft and will be ready to present to the mother-to-be as soon as it dries and gets those ends trimmed off.

As good as I feel now, I will likely be knocked down to size as soon as I start the next project, my first sweater. The pattern is the Rib & Eyelet Pullover from Nashua handknits. Since the suggested yarn is a bit scratchier than I'd like around my neck, I'll be knitting it in Rowan Polar instead. Wish me luck!
