It started with Spider-pillow

My photo
A while back when i worked at The Comic Book Shoppe (bank st) we had a regular christmas secret santa. The first year i was there i pulled Ted who had a thing for Spider-man. In one of those strange moments of brilliant clarity I whipped up spider-pillow. It was the old Spider-man logo with a round pillow in the middle and 8 3-D legs all made out of comfy fun fur....things have continued in this manner. This is my so called craft

so many things to knit

Back in January i was browsing knitting websites. lots of patterns, hats, toys, leg warmers, random things to knit. so many projects :)

but had made Blaise a promise not to start something new until the scarf was finished.

learning a technique wouldn't count as making something new so i decided to learn how to use double-pointed needles (DP).

so 4 needles, 3 containing stitches and one working needles. in my reading i had discovered that the most common newbie frustration was that you get a ladder or a loosening of stitches when you switch from one needle to the next. so borrowed a set of DPs from Rachel, grabbed a ball of wool and gave it a go.

i'm either totally lucky or i have a natural talent for DP needle work, not a gap or ladder to be seen.
