My First Projects for 2006

I recently finished the Hurry Up Spring Armwarmers from Stitch 'N Bitch Nation. It was my first time using a chart and making a gusset (!) and overall things went really well. Actually, the left armwarmer is a few rows too long and the thumb is somewhat wonky seeing as how I knit the gusset on the wrong side so it does not match the left. I'm not too concerned. I am going to look into ripping back a few rows from the top though. Those extra rows that hide my pinky are irritating. I really love the bright, fun colors in the Noro Kureyon though.

This is just a simple ribbed hat based on HotHead from SnB made with the leftover Noro yarn. It's a little short, but it will be ok. I think it complements the armwarmers pretty well.

1st Post

This site is to maintain photos and notes on my crafty journey. Plus, whatever else I'm thinking. Maybe I can get some good tips from other knitters. Anyway, lots of photos and past projects to come forthwith.
