I rule, my neighbor drools

OK maybe she doesn't, least not that I've seen. I'm just terrible with titles.

But I do rule! *nods*

I finished my first knit item this morning, WOOT! I bound off Hash's scarf this morning on the bus and finished weaving in the ends about 30 minutes ago. AND I still have enough yarn left over to make him a matching hat! I know just the pattern I'm going to use too.

Next on the list: a skullcap that's about half done. I'm using LB Wool-Ease (which I love) in a nifty navy and cadet blue twist. So far I think it's kicks ass. And if Hash doesn't appreciate it (like several other hats I've made him...) I'm definately snagging this one for myself, bwahahaha.

I had the camera in my bag this morning and took it out because I didn't think I'd need/want it today. Now I'm kinda kicking myself. Oh well a pic will have to come later. I still need to block the scarf anyways. Since I used 4x4 ribbing it has cinched itself down to a 5" width when it's suppose to be 7".

It's an uber simple pattern but since it's my first knit item and design I'd like to share it. =) So expect a pattern soon. Actually I already have it typed up but I'll wait for a pic before I post it.

Yay me!

Congratulations! I made my first knit hat a few weeks ago; it was so much fun! Just knit around and around! I've been using Crazy Aunt Purl's hat recipe, and it's so simple.

Congratulations!! I cannot wait to see pics, and I'm giving myself a kick in the ass to learn to knit. I *must* I *will* day ;)
