Lets Try This Again

Sooooo, I had a false start to this blog thing. I really really want to be a blogger. I am not a great writer, but I feel like having this would be a good outlet for me and a good way to connect to other knitters. I am really still learning about myself as a knitter, so it is a never ending process of discovery. Seriously, I can not complete a single larger project. I have had two sweaters on the needles for about 8 months now. But I can focus and finish smaller projects like hats and socks. So that is what I have been sticking to! And my stash is getting a bit out of control, but that is okay! Destash is addictive, hehe!
Oh gosh, I have worked on so many things over the months. And I even was part of two different swaps! I will blog about a few things each time. I'm just so busy with school and I don't really like how Blogger works, oh well.

Odessa by Grumperina
Rowan RYC Cashsoft Baby DK
Color 809 - Blue Boy
I made this for my boyfriend's mom. The color is actually more periwinkle - the second picture accurately represents the color. Fun pattern to knit but it really hurt my hands. I'm not sure if it was the yarn or the needles - metal DPNs. This yarn is heavenly soft.

Worsted Weight Yarn from Aran Islands, Ireland
Woohoo! My best friend was in Ireland and look what she brought me! I dyed it using easter egg dye into a delightful combination of blues, greens, and yellows. It has yet to become a FO. I tried twice to make it into a Hemlock Ring Blanket which was made infamous by Jared at BrooklynTweed. It was just not meant to be. If you have any suggestions for it, let me know! It is a bit scratchy, so keep that in mind.
