Tiny Victories

A few days ago, I decided it was time to learn to knit.  I picked up a copy of Stitch ‘N Bitch : The Knitter’s Handbook, walked over to the Garment District, and bought a set of needles & a few different colors of yarn.

The last three days, in between bottles of wine and silly movies, I have cursed, thrown my supplies down, and watched more than a dozen This Is How You Knit, You Retard videos on youtube.  There was also some pointing and laughing in my direction, but it was well deserved.

Now, I am a basics master and knitted a teeny, tiny little swatch – all cast on, English Method, and bound off like an old pro!

Friends, family, and small animals – be warned.  There shall be scarves in your future.

In other news, we had another blizzard, and my man & one of our roommates braved the storm and had brunch.  One of these days, I will venture outside with my fancy camera again, but Snowpocalypse V.10million was not that day.

    I never grow tired of your eccentric ways. Please, never change. :-)

    Forget the scarves etc as gifts for relatives — I reckon an SG set where you’re WEARING something you knitted is on the cards. Obviously, you’ll stitch your way out of it at some point in the set… :-P

    Jokes aside, I do seriously wish you every success with your new endeavour.
