Don't give up the emoticon obsession yet, Amy!
Did you notice the poor knitters obviously don't know how to make a center pull ball? :knitting:

Willow thanks you for the compliment! To my best estimation, she's part Pit Bull and part Whippet... I call her a Pippet!

Because she's a bit curled up in that photo, the sweater looks like it comes...

Howie... meet Willow.

She too destroyed a pair of bamboo needles and a baby sweater I was knitting. It was the first thing she ever chewed after I got her -- so it was almost adorable in a "look...

The last thing I finished was actually a baby sweater and hat, but since I finished it on a plane to NYC just seconds before seeing the recipient, I don't have a picture!

I have the opposite desire. I learned Continental from my German grandmother, but I have a hankering to teach myself English.

I actually knit the entire back of a cardigan with Homespun, realized I hated it, frogged it and gave away all six skeins I'd bought.

It's just not a favorite of mine.

If it turns out that you...

Just an FYI, I traveled through LAX and JFK last week with my knitting (on 13" plastic needles) and the screeners didn't bat an eye.
