Hello Hello and Happy New Year!
I am currently making some baby things for my co-worker and then moving on to my two sister-in-laws who are due in March and then in July. I also have a slew of friends pregnant from college so when I finish with family there are plenty of babies to knit for.
I will also be moving soon to Asheville, North Carolina. I have always loved visiting Asheville--it is the perfect combination of artsy and down to earth. The mountains are amazing and the people are funky. I hope we will be there for a long time. If I can't find a yarn shop that suits my needs I guess I will just have to open one up! That's all for now.

love this yarn, love this pattern--so far organized Christmas knitting is going well. since i know my mom doesn't even know about this blog it's okay to post this one!
recently, i have been attempting to switch over to continental knitting and this project is my first TOTALLY continental project since i first learned to knit. I (like EZ) learned to knit continental but was then lead astray and began solely using English style knitting. i have finally conquered the continental purl and feel very confident knitting. hopefully this will mean faster knitting and greater efficiency= less pain in my hands!

i'm beginning the task of knitting a scarf for my co-worker. guys are harder to knit for in my opinion. i settled on entrelac for now. he wanted some texture and i like the woven look of entrelac. i also want to finish this scarf relatively soon-- and entrelac is just so enjoyable!
i just learned how to knit backwards through this video! if you hate purling like me check it out.
i am almost finished my sweater and i will take pictures of it when i'm finished. i can't wait to wear it at the new york sheep and wool festival in rhinebeck , ny! is anyone else going as well?
