ok, so this is my first post on the knitting board...
i started knitting about a year ago, i taught myself from a book (and i'm a continental knitter, at that...
i've never finished anything great, i'm still learning and halfway finishing millions of projects.

i'm currently working on my "first" FO, a blanket (afghan?) for my boyfriend for christmas, but i figured i'd take a bit of a break today and use up some of my extra yarn and try some fair isle (i've never knit with two colors before... :S)

and here's what i came up with:
(not very exciting, but i'd like to get some feedback from some of the more experienced knitters, because my roommate is not exactly the knitting pro...)

A "mu" iclicker holder!!!!! yay physics geek...
the iclicker is something we use in lecture, its a remote so the professor can quiz us during class... i have a joke about (the greek letter) mu with my friends... so i figured my iclicker could enjoy a sweater (it is fall...)

(actually its just a knit practice square i sewed up the side... i'm not happy with the seam)


close up of the mu


the top part (i did moss stitch, using white for the purl and blue for the knit stitches...)


the iclicker peeking out, all lit up because he's warm Smiley

sorry for the crappy webcam pictures (and my creepy face and dorm room peeking out the sides  Undecided, but the digital camera is out of batteries... as usual...

so, how does it look for a first-timer Smiley
