My name is Ann and I've been knitting for about a year and I LOVE IT! Even though I haven't been knitting too long, I've been knitting a LOT! I enjoy knitting a variety of items... so far I've tried everything from scarves, mittens, socks and bags to sweaters, shawls and toys. From day one, I've enjoyed Interweave Knits magazine. Their patterns are awesome, I enjoy their hints, pictures and articles, etc.. I subscribed immediately and have even purchased previous issues.
When I heard about the FAVORITE SOCKS book by IK, I certainly had to buy it. While there are MANY patterns that I plan to try, the one that peaked my interest most is the AUSTRIAN SOCKS pattern.
This past weekend I purchased the yarn (GEMS in cream) and am all ready to go!... umm.. well... except for a few WIPs that I need to finish before casting on.
I promised myself I would finish a few before starting a new project of any kind! I won't even wind the yarn into balls until right before I am ready to start... otherwise I will cast those on as well! LOL!
