So, I'm yet another newbie knitter that decided to blog to keep track of the trials and tribulations of the craft called knitting. Mom showed me how to crochet as a kid and so I've been doing that off and on over the years. It wasn't until a friend of mine at work encouraged me to try knitting and loaned me her SnB book and one other as well that I decided to give it a go. After many teeny tiny little swatches knit up w/some kind of big box acrylic yarn, I went on to knit a few scarves in leftover LB acrylic stuff (Jiffy - still a UFO) and stoopidly, all kinds of eyelash yarn.
That all said, I give you my first non-scarf knitted object in all it's wonky stitched glory. It's the Daisy cardigan from knitty.com knit in knitpicks shine sport in blush.
