wiggin' out

when i first started knitting i made a scarf. it was two feet long and about three inches thick. it -- to put it bluntly -- sucked like a hoover. a friend made fun of it and i stopped knitting for a while, utterly forsook.

but then i saw two patterns on knitty that intrigued me. one was the voodoo wristwarmers, and the other was the hallowig. both involved using either double pointed needles or a circular. at this juncture not only did i not own these implements, i did not know what they were. adding stitches in the round midway through a project was utterly terrifying. however now, returning to this pattern as a seasoned knitter, i was ready. and here are the results:

pink just isn't my color. perty, ain't she?

now let's rate 'er.
