Happy first knitting birthday!

To think, I had just started knitting this time last year.

I've learnt a lot in the last 12 months. I've knit a scarf, a baby cardigan, a beanie, 5 socks (2 Eleanor, 2 baby sized and one monkey), booties, a bag, an MP3 player case, soakers & longies. I have projects that I have started and abandoned, frogged, changed my mind about. I have a library of books and magazines. I've cast on, knit, purled, yarn overed, increased, decreased, patterned, felted, dropped stitches, cursed, picked up stitches, sewn up, kitchenered, 3 needle bound off, joined, laced and cast off. I've made some great friends.

I talk about knitting all the time on my other blog. I have my online friends asking me for knitting pattern help and advice on yarn and needles. I still feel like I have a lot to learn. My next pattern should be more creative, something incorporating cables or colourwork but I really want to knit a pair of ankle socks. I have grand plans to knit an argyle vest one day, and I'd love to knit cabled longies too. One day in the future. :D

I am currently knitting a sweater for Jayden. I only have a few more rows to go and I'll have finished the front. I put in some serious hours on Thursday and Saturday and it is starting to show now.
