Hi. Well, I have been skulking around this forum for a few weeks and decided it is time to be a participant. I am delighted to have found the underground of knitting--I knew you had to be there! I have learned a few tricks and have seen beautiful works by all of you.
Thanks to FriskieKittie, I have a start on MySoCalledScarf, and I love it! I have had some trouble with the stitch and had to cut out the glass of wine when I work on her, but I have gotten good at unknitting the stitch and it is mostly going forward now. I also finished my first sock and presented it, along with sock #2 in progress, to my sister for her birthday. She was impressed with my new talent, but I had to give a lot of credit to the self-patterning yarn. Finally, last night I went to Group Therapy at my LYS and gathered a bunch of yarns in earthy colors to make my own version of prisim yarn. I plan to make an asymmetrical poncho out of it. That's all I am willing to admit to as being OTN right now!
