A new year, an old addiction.
It seems to be time to write about knitting. I'm not sure why anyone would be interested, but I read other blogs about the subject, so why not?
I've been knitting sporadically since I was about 14. My grandmother was a talented knitter, but not a teacher. My mom sent me to a kindly neighbor for lessons.
My needles lay dormant for decades, but last year I began again, knitting the obligatory fun fur scarves for co-worker holiday gifs.
Since then, I've become obsessed. I consider myself only an advanced beginner, but I'd like to try new and more difficult projects.
Right now, I'm working on Twisty Turns, a shawl/wrap from the Wrap Style book. I'm working in Nashua Creative Focus Worsted, and just ripped out 40 rows to begin again. There was a flaw I couldn't stand.
Thoughts, responses? Anybody out there?
