I picked up my knitting needles again yesterday. I haven't knit in a while because I get carpel tunnel while pregnant, and I just hadn't started back up again since Rose was born. Well, it's about time I do it again! I still have pain in my hands, but I'm hoping to figure something out to keep them from hurting so much. I really enjoy knitting-- it's therapeutic. I'm actually pretty good at it, too. I am self taught but I lack a lot of the knowledge, so hopefully I'll be able to learn everything I need to know thanks to the wonder of the internet. One resource I've been using a lot is knittinghelp.com-- it has video tutorials, links to free patterns, and loads more information.
One other motivation to knit again is the many skeins of yarn I have lying around the house (it might even be in the hundreds of skeins!). I need to get those knit up into a usable object! I can't buy any yarn until I have most of the yarn I already have finished up into projects. As I continue to improve my skills, I will share my finished projects on this blog.
