A newbie

Yes, Sam is now a knitter. Here she is, balling her first skein of yarn. Don't you just want to pinch her cheek?

Her first project is not a dish towel. It is Calorimetry, which does in fact require the use of short rows. Sam did wonderfully on that aspect, it was gauge that got her. Version 1, which I do not have a photo of, was...large. Way bigger than any head on earth. So she tore it out, took out 12 stitches (based on my precise measurements) and...still too big. Closer, but not functional. Photos are forthcoming, though I'm unsure if Sam will actually let me take a pic of her wearing it. I might have to step in as a model.
On my needles? Quant. In a wholly different colorway. Will be done with that soon.

Ooohhhh. I can't wait to see the finished project.

Sam sounds like a natural, already mastering some of the tough stuff (like ripping out).

How are you liking the entrelac?! It looks like it would be fun in that pattern. Despite not being a fan, my great knitting silence this fall has mostly been due to an entrelac lace shawl that is kicking my butt. I hope to show it soon.

Congrats to Sam, although it was inevitable. One can only live for so long in close proximity to the powerful knitting mojo that is Abby and not be effected.
