Well I've been into crafts with yarn for about 2 years now, but until this point I've been doing nothing but crochet until one day while in the craft store, I thought why the hell not and spent money on a pair of kid needles. (so cute, they have little kittens on top and are different colors, but anyway...)

After I learned how to do the dreaded purl stitch, I quickly learned how to read a pattern I started on this cute pattern that I always wanted to make.

it's called the "Emerald Green Handwarmers" from Creativeyarn over at Ravelry.

here the pics:




Since I don't know how to use dpns yet I really like making flat items that I sew up. I'm probably obessed with knitting gloves now. Apparently, a girl in class says that I'm epic because this was my first real knitting project and that I can crochet and knit now.

I hope I can post more things, and learn more things soon!

i love these. and wish my early projects (and some current) turned out that nice
+i hate purling. (i think most knitters do.)
Dpns are weird at first. took me a while to get used to but now i despise seaming and go to great lengths to avoid it.

you are pretty epic.

I'm the opposite, I like the challenge of making the perfect seam.

Congrats they look great.  I on the other hand don't mind purling.  :  )  Keep up the good work.
