Welcome!

I've been knitting for over 6 years now, and I've gotten pretty good at it. I don't have much time for big projects, and instant gratification tries to run my life. Many of my smaller projects don't get posted because I forget, or I give the items away before a picture can be taken. Rest assured, I am always knitting something.

Lately...

I've been doing lots of small projects - wristwarmers with thinner yarn for Mom and a co-worker, dishcloths... Simple things. I decided to see what the Horde symbol would look like on size 5 needles.



I also have Hufflepuff-style wristwarmer and glove. Yes. One of each. I made the glove and then decided working on those stupid fingers was way too much work. I did a pretty bad job on them out of impatience and frustration. But the wristwarmer looks good. I planned on making the mate with black as the main color, but I don't want them to look too much like bumblebee gloves. I'll probably just leave them partnerless and make Horde wristwarmers for both Dan and myself.






And finally... I bought a book on afghans and am currently making slow-but-nearly-steady progress on Dan's mom's afghan that she was supposed to get for Christmas. I had to scrap my very messy progress on the previous attempt, but I think it's starting to take shape well.
