This past winter I caught the knitting bug! I've known how to knit/purl for years,
but have never (successfully) tackled anything other than a garter stitch scarf.
I've always said I would rather sew because of the instant gratification factor,
but there is something really great about slowing down and watching a
project grow from just a skein of yarn.
This was the first project that I knit last fall, using the
Secret Song Mittens pattern from Interweave's Knitscene (Spring 2012).
They've gotten a lot of use this winter and they match my coat perfectly!
Have you caught the knitting bug? What was the first project you were most proud of?
