As you’ve probably deduced, I’m not quitting knitting (heavens, no – I’ll just have many things undone, like that newsletter).
And for my latest knitting accomplishment, I have
taught Dawn to knit!
I feel really special right now. She’s brilliant at it already.
As for my knitting, I’ve gotten to the heel portion of the first Rivendell sock (still no photos, sorry) in record time, that is, I’ve done it in under a week as opposed to my usual three months! With cables! And irritating wraps! And it’s awesome! But a little small. I think next time I’m using both bigger yarn and bigger needles. The Fearless Fibers yarn is beautiful, but on the small size, so I had to go down to size 0 needles to make it look not swiss-cheesy, and therefore it’s on the tight side. I’m really stubborn and I’m forging ahead. It’s not that tight…
By day, I'm a graphic designer. By night, I'm a knitter. I'm doing my part to keep Hotlanta stylish.
I imagine that if you don't already understand the title of the blog, you're probably confused and perhaps slightly annoyed, but never fear - I do have a reason (and it's a good one). Having gone to hear Stephanie Pearl McPhee, and then having been inspired to blog about knitting, I found myself wondering what to call the blog. I recalled a conversation I had with Mouse and the Chicken Goddess about why it is a Bad Idea to anger knitters - this conversation was following SPM, aka the Yarn Harlot telling the assembled throng about Those Who Do Not Understand Knitting and Therefore Belittle It Much to the Chagrin of Others, or TWDNUKTBMCO, which is not the acronym she used but is the one I'm using because I forgot hers - that is, we are numerous and we all have very pointy sticks, easily transforming into an angry mob.
Therefore, knitters = angry mob.

Oh, dear Laura, you are much too kind. I will try to make you proud . . . especially when my 6 rows (including those with giant holes from dropped stitches) turns into a beautiful cardigan — with pearl buttons, I think — by next weekend. There is, after all, a whole Spring Break week for me to knit, knit and knit!
