though i have been knitting for over 17 years, i am ashamed to admit that i am like liz lemon in my knitting habits. every two years i take up knitting... for a week. it must be my time again, because i was recently inspired by this sweet girl so i decided to pick up my knitting needles again for a couple of new projects.
you know what i also love? ravelry! yes, i must be the last knitter in the world to discover it, but better late then never, no? and even more sadly, it was my non-knitting boyfriend who clued me into the awesomeness of ravelry. come visit me and see what i'm working on!
what i just finished was the star crossed slouchy beret, which is my favorite new hat for the fall. mostly because i can pull it on over my ponytail bun and shove all my hair up inside it, which gives me a stupidly immense amount of pleasure. and i got to practice my cabling and used a skein of alpaca that my mom gave me a few years ago. it's super soft and cozy and just right. so right that i don't really care that i look a bit like a dirty hippie in it, either.
