In the round.

Happy one-year knit-aversary to me! I can't believe I've been knitting a whole year now, but I also can't believe it's only been a year since I've been knitting. I feel like I've come so far, but I know I still have so much to learn. This time last year I was arriving in Colorado, about to begin knitting boot camp with my Jess.

"Get to work, soldier!"

My guru.

By the end of the long weekend, I had a finished project, a baby hat for little Owen Collin.

Since then, I've finished 35 projects and am currently on my 36th, a beautiful Noro "market shawl." Knitting takes a slight back burner to sunny-time reading in the summer, but I'm still making progress.

It means so much to me to have this special skill to share with my Jess, and it's been a life saver this past year, which at times has been quite hard (and boring). I've always got something to work on, something to calm my mind, and there's nothing like the pride and joy of finishing a project. Except, of course, passing on the love to one you love.

The knitting circle continues...
