My first post

Hello and welcome to my knitting blog. I am still trying to figure out all of this an get it set up. What I don't know about html has probably filled many books.

So what do I have planned for this blog? Mostly I would like to keep a record of my knitting exploits. I am ashamed to say that I currently have no record of anything I have knit. I would like to have some photos and notes about projects I have worked on, completed and designed.

I am a self taught knitter. In college (Smith College if you care to know) I signed a book out of the library and bought some really ugly yarn and needles at Woolworths and went to work on knitting up what came to be known as the "World's Ugliest Afghan" Once my new digital camera arrives and I learn how to post pictures I will give you more details on that. Anyway, since that first project I haven't looked back.

Currently I knit nearly every free moment I can. I have a bit of a problem really, but I figure anyone wasting their time by reading yet another knitting blog shares in my addiction. I meet with my local Stitch and Bitch group once a week. This group of ladies is fantastic and have really helped me grow as a knitter. I went from being terrified to deviate from a pattern to even writing my own patterns in a years time. Just goes to show you can teach and old dog new tricks.
