I finally learned how to cast on myself too.

I'll have to post my two new scarves I'm working on. I'm trying some new things

So I am now working on this gray 'angel hair' scarf.. its really soft and furry and with the new needles I got its SO easy to knit because it just slides so easily on and off the needles.




This one I'm trying some new things, 2 different types of yarns.. one regular type and one 'boa' type. This one is going to be for my mom.

ooooh, purrrrty! Ok, I really need to get off my keister and go buy some yarn tonite. I can sit and watch TV and do something useful at the same time for a change.

Major

I've gotten bitten by the knitting bug all over again now (in mid-summer, what's wrong with me? ), and am currently working on my first project on double pointed needles.

Armwarmers in a self-striping grey-black-white yarn called Zebra:






Knitting on double pointed needles is really not any harder than knitting on straight needles. Getting started is harder, but once you get going, it's exactly the same. And you don't have to turn your work

Oh it does. My mom (who knits quite a bit and quite well) tried to help me years ago and my dominating hand does not go in the same direction as hers. I asked someone else to teach me a couple months ago and she said its harder as left handers go the opposite way to the way it's supposed to be done. (Hope I'm making sense!)
