Knitting in the round.
Why I chose that as my ‘first project’? I have no good answer. Eileen, our instructor, showed us a few samples of her work, and one of them was a pair of stripey socks. I saw 4 needles and was like, “woah, I want to be cool enough to knit with four needles at once.” I also love love love stripey socks. I thought about choosing socks, but realized this kid will come out of me in less than a month. Maybe I should make something for Baby?
I’m not one for pastel colors (though I do love wearing pink). We also opted to not find out the gender at our 20 week ultrasound. So… I was thinking yellow, or green… then my sister suggested a fall color. A deep-red orange it is.
