Hello, knitting board!  I'm new around here.  I started knitting towards the end of November, and have quickly become obsessed.  I think knitting might be the perfect wintertime activity - it's so soothing and cozy!  Anyway, I figured it was about time I came out of hiding and posted some of my first knits.  Here we go!

First up is my most recent project: a buttoned-up neckwarmer/scarflette.  I made this using a dish cloth pattern from http://www.geocities.com/love2knit_dishcloths/DishclothIndex.html (the Lacy Zig Zag).  The yarn is alpaca, and it is ridiculously soft and warm.  I'm in love.





That was actually my second neckwarmer.  This was my first (made as a Christmas gift for my sister-in-law).  The yarn is sport-weight superwash wool.  I made it using the Drop Stitch Scarf pattern on ravelry, which is a great quick and easy knit for beginners - definitely a good way to launch into lace. 




Another knitted gift was this new baby set, made for a little someone who should be arriving any day now.  The hat is the SnB Umbilical Cord Hat.  The booties came from a ravely pattern that I altered slightly.






An early project was this garter stitch scarf I made for my husband, which is currently doing an excellent job keeping him warm (important, considering how cold it has been in Ohio in the past few weeks!).






Finally, here are a few of my very little, very early projects: a stockinette cell phone cozy, a box stitch washcloth (I've since made more, and I am loving hand-knit washcloths!), and garter stitch coasters, which were my very first project ever.








Thanks for looking!

I started knitting in October and I completely agree with how quickly you become obsessed with it, although your talent has taken over mine! I love your ambitious early projects, they look great

If all our life is but a dream, fantastic posing greed
Then we should feed our jewelry to the sea
For diamonds do appear to be
Just like broken glass to me.
