I’m having issues containing my excitement. The knitting machine I ordered a few weeks ago finally arrived! It’s the same model I learned on at school, so I had no issues jumping right back into it. Next semester and onward I’ll even be able to take my projects back and forth with me!
I picked up some organic cotton yarn from Art Fibers to practice with.
I adore knitting by hand. There is nothing quite like watching NBC on Thursday nights, or listening to the This American Life podcast with a kitty curled up on your lap while you’re knitting away on a sweater or hat, but there’s a fashion designer and a rabid knitwear lover in me that needs things and needs things now to satisfy all my creative itches.
No worries though! This blog is absolutely not straying a bit from it’s focus on my love of hand knitting.
Here’s some progress I made on Gretel this week, I’m really into this cable pattern.
Why, yes, that is a kitty tooth mark in my knitting needle.
