Just Starting Out

OK - so this is my first entry in my brand new blog about knitting. I am not only new to the blog world but the knitting world as well. I have only been knitting for just over a year and I am very green but I love it! So if I have any questions I hope some of you more experienced knitters will help me out.

The project I'm currently working on is the Jacket with Seed Stitch Bands from Baby Knits for Beginners by Debbie Bliss. It's for my friend's baby girl, Avarey, who just turened 3 months old. Love the pink - it's so pretty! I just so happen to be knitting it on pink metal size 3 needles that my grandmother gave to me.

I really like the Debbie Bliss Baby book for several reasons: 1) I just had a baby - my son, Oliver is 4 months old! 2) the book is for beginners so it starts out with a very simple piece and each piece after that requires you to learn a new skill in knitting, and 3) everything is so small - it takes me no time to finish a project - and if I mess up at least it is on a small scale.

So with that I'm off to knit some more while Oliver is down for his nap.
