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.

    How fun, I’ve never used a knitting machine before!

    My bamboo needles have toothmarks in them too. Not sure if it’s of the kitty or puppy variety, but I’m guessing puppy.

    Oh, cool! Can’t wait to see what you use it for. I’ve never used one.
