This is me--What are you?

I frogged the sock I started for my sister. It seemed to be too big, I was a little bored with it (just stockinette) and I'm too much of a perfectionist. I bought some smaller dpn's and I found a pattern here that is very simple but not uninteresting. I'm not following all the instructions, I'm just using the stitch design. But I'm trying it out on some sock yarn I had in my stash (okay, it's the only other sock yarn I own besides my sister's). I guess I'm just selfish--me first! I have high hopes, but I have yet to actually FINISH a sock...

You are Merino Wool.You are very easygoing and sweet. People like to keep you close because you are so softhearted. You love to be comfortable and warm from your head to your toes.

Take this quiz!

Busy Busy...

My sister came down to visit this weekend. We watched some movies (read: knitting time!). I had a fun time, and I hope she did too.

I got a lot done on my sweater, see?

We also browsed at the LYS and got some Koigu KPPM sock yarn. I told my sister I'd make her some socks for her birthday. I'm slightly jealous--what a yummy color!

My current work-in-progress: a top-down raglan sweater of my own design. It's pretty simple, just stockinette with a cable down the middle, but I've never done cables before, and I've never designed my own sweater. It's elsebeth lavold silky wool in color #8.

And she's off!

I never, EVER thought I'd have a blog. Acutally, I never thought ABOUT having a blog in the first place. But I decided to give it a whirl, anyway.

My name is Melly. I like to knit, among a LOT of other things, and I've been inspired by a lot of other people out there who share what they're doing. I hope that maybe someone will be interested in what I'm doing, too. And if not, well, I can always be my own biggest fan! Yay--go Melly!
