Hey, look, a blog!

Well, I guess this is it -- I'm officially part of the "blogscene". At almost-but-not-quite 30, I feel really old for it, but my knitting passion doesn't really belong on my slashdot journal.

Let me tell you something about myself. I'm 29 (30 in September), married, and have two kitties and a puppy. I've recently joined Knitters with ALTITUDE, a yahoo group of crazy colorado knitters who meet once a week at a random coffee shop to knit and chat.

In the short time that I've been knitting, I've completed the Princess Snowball cat bed (from Stitch'n'Bitch) in orange and green, the laptop bag from Stitch'n'Bitch Nation (modified so the stripes line up), two small felted handbags, and two sets of "Hurry Up Spring" armwarmers (also from SNBN). Oh, and of course the requisite "couple of scarves".

Needles: I'm in love with bamboo needles. Straights, DPN's, and Circulars. Currently knitting on size 8 bamboo circulars.
Yarn: My latest purchase was Rowan Felted Tweed. Merino wool, alpaca and rayon.
Technique: English. I'm a thrower. It makes the most sense to me.
Latest Project: "Under the Hoodie" from SNB in grey, navy blue, and teal.
