Loving Knitting!
I started knitting at christmas with a scarf set that my Mum gave me. I found it so fun that I decided to buy a dog coat kit for my Mum's cold prone terrier. It turned out pretty well apart from the fact that the button holes look weird and the dogs ripped it apart! Ah well! Then I looked around on the internet for a help site and found this wonderful place and I've learnt loads of things and I'm getting totally addicted to knitting! So then I used Silver's Sock Tutorial to knit some socks for my Grandma.
And after that I knitted some gloves with some leftover acrylic I was given, in fact most of my wool is acrylic! Don't really know what to do with it!

So in closing, thanks Knitting Help for getting me totally hooked!

Wow! You just started knitting at Christmas, and you've already done socks AND gloves?!?! That's fabulous! The socks look great. I couldn't see the gloves either, just another picture of the socks.

So what project will you take on next? :D

Yes, so, so addicting! I used to draw all day now I knit all day!
I'm currently in the middle of making some more fingerless gloves but I've obviously made a mistake as the pinkie has somehow ended up by the thumb... Glove Pattern
Thanks for all the nice comments!
