It’ll Be Just Like Starting Over

Alright, for real this time.

This is The Accidental Knitter, blogging to you live from deepest, darkest Central Pennsylvania. I think I finally have my act together enough to actually keep this blog going for longer than 2 months, so here I go again.

For those of you who don’t know what an Accidental Knitter is, I’ll explain. It’s a person who never intended to pick up needles and yarn out of lack of interest/hand coordination/gray matter, but did one day and found it to be… addicting. It’s a person who figured it wasn’t a craft worth learning – I mean, acrylic yarn is just so… old-fashioned. And boring (sorry, Grandma – the blue K2P2 sweater you made me is all I knew at the time). It’s a person who once uttered the question, “Why would you knit socks when you can just buy them for five bucks a pack?”

My, how I’ve grown.

Anyway, this is just a quick re-introduction. I’ll soon be rambling about all sorts of knitting experiences, WIPs, and hopefully my attempts to learn how to spin. Right now, I want to finish the heel flap on my sock project.

    Ah, the heart-shaped dreidel. Who knew Cupid was Jewish? 🙂 I liked it too.

    The pile of purple yarn has been tossed on a chair and ignored in favor of the yarn order I just got in the mail … including a ball of alpaca/cashmere that’s so soft, it ought to purr when it’s petted. Sweater? What sweater? Vive le difference!

    I hope A.K. is feeling better!

    You know, I haven’t really looked at Vogue Knitting yet; I will have to check it out. Not that I really need more patterns lying around, begging to be made and distracting me from the things I SHOULD BE working on now. So many great ideas, so … little … time!
