dude, this is so cool

It took three tries and a year to learn how to knit in the first place. The third time, I just kind of picked up the needles and went. Whatever Ginger, Jillie, and Anjela had been trying to show me finally sunk in, and I was puzzled as to why I'd ever had problems in the first place.

The first time I tried to make something on dpns was a few months ago. I got really annoyed, and the dpns have been living in a plastic cup on my desk ever since. Until tonight. I have a quarter inch of stockinette hanging off of them. And it's not a mobius strip! :) It looks like ass, but well.

Verily, I am pleased. I shall have to haul out the sock yarn. Tomorrow. (Though, actually, before I try sock, I think I should start with armwarmers.) Who knows? Maybe lace will be next.
