Holy heavens, I FOUND IT. The first pattern I did was a boring knit one row, purl the next for armwarmers. I figured it
d be a good idea since its basic and I was just beginning, right?
Well, now I'm working on the Lion Brand Ripple Shawl for my nan and I am FLYING through it. It took a few months to do that last one and I'm still not really done. (Haven't seamed it even now when I started in January.)
This one? I've gone through a ball of 120 yards of yarn in less than two weeks. And I just picked up my knitting again and I think I've cut about a quarter into the next ball.
I am just so excited. It's coming out beautifully and so quickly. I am knitting for literally HOURS a day, quite happily. I am so in love with this right now, I have even forsaken World of Warcraft. That's right, I'm a WoW geek who's managed to get pulled away. The last day on my subscription is tomorrow, I'm going to let it lapse to finish this. (It's a Christmas present.)
Awesome ... I think I must try making more shawls. Or at least something that looks like something in the end.
