I am in Danger of Becoming a Mad Knitter…

….and I’m delighted by the prospect! I have been working away on my first project, the Basic Triangle Shawl, and I’m nearing the end. There are holes from dropped stitches and a couple of spots where I knit two garter stitch rows instead of one, but I am really happy with it.

I used Rowan All Seasons Cotton from my stash and it’s just butter soft and cozy! Like fabric, I really like quality yarns; I have found that they really impact your knitting experience. Needles also make a big difference, as I started on thrifted aluminum ones before Miss H. lent me her wood circular set. Heaven!

I was frankly amazed that I was able to knit stockinette stitch at all. I’ll chalk that one up to excellent instructions in the pattern and a handy little knitting pamphlet by Patons that I found.

This knitting? It’s awesome.
