So, I started my hat last night. Yeah, I'm knitting a hat. Siercia made me a very nice hat, but hats are easy, and I can always use another hat. So, yeah, I cast on 84 stitches (I knit about 4 stitches to the inch with this yarn) and started knitting on the big wooden needles, and then moved the yarn over to the circular plastic needles(!), which made me nervous eventually, but they seem to not be any harder than the wooden ones. I didn't make too many mistakes, and [livejournal.com profile] siercia says it looks pretty good. I'll do an hour or so every evening (it actually started to make my hands sore!) and see how quickly I progress.

I ended last night when I realized being slightly tipsy was not helping my M@D kn!77!ng $k!ll$. :)

Words my wife never thought she would ever hear me say: "Cat, if you touch my knitting, we're going to have a problem."

Yeah, [livejournal.com profile] siercia taught me to knit last night. I can now cast on, and am busily knitting a square. OK, I'm actually probably knitting a hat, but it's a piece of knitting at this point.

I'm not half-bad at it, after I got over the stupid "Add-a-stitch" trick that took me from 21 to 31 stitches. Oops. OK, so it'll be a little larger than planned... I have a decent-sized head....
