Hooray! After a too long hiatus from, well just about everything but taking care of the Ame bean, I am back to crafting! And I finally finished my first knitting project. It is not the easiest thing in the world to go from crocheting to knitting - it's a whole new way to hold your hands. And thank goodness for the continental method (which is using your opposite hand to hold yarn versus the English method), otherwise I would have never gotten it.
So I made the obligatory first scarf, with all the normal newbie mistakes. It's actually a cowl but same difference I guess. Now I just need to wait forever until I can actually wear it.
