The First One!

I've wanted to start a blog for a while but have really been putting it off. There are so many great blogs out there. Mine will be mostly knitting related. I hope I can "measure-up" to so many fabulous knitters and writers out there! My photo is a gansey sweater I have been knitting on for over a year now. It's the Kinsale from Alice Starmore's, "Fishermen's Sweaters" book. I love this sweater but it is taking me forever! I have knit several things since starting it so I shouldn't be so discouraged. The design is actually vertical on the sweater not horizontal as in the pic!
More posts, pictures and such to come as I figure this thing out! I've listed some other blogs I read that are friends and knitters I admire although I don't know. I get such inspiration from these gals!

I'm delighted to have you list me on your "pals" list and will be happy to help where I can in bloggereese! (I'm not the best, but know probably enough to be VERY dangerous!!! Plus, I'm local!) and Robin will be a big help, as will Indigo Muse!

CONGRATULATIONS! It's about time you did this!

Not an easy project in the least! I can see why you have to take breaks and make some other things in between.
