I consider myself a 'knitter' now that I can confidently cast on & off, knit and purl, and skip/pick up/drop stitches without having to watch a YouTube tutorial four times first. :)

Also- thank you!

All of you impress the hell out of me to be honest. But gee Erika, that's pretty amazing, for a novice. Super knitter indeed.

I may have undersold myself a bit. My mom has been knitting forever and taught me to knit and purl many years ago. It just took me until literally a few years ago to remember how to cast on and learn how to knit in the round. It was only a few months ago that I had to confidence to move up to shaped garments like sweaters and cardigans. The striped blouse is probably my first truly solo project that I feel really satisfied with.

Thank you very much, everyone! I am verrrry happy with it.

i love the underbust shaping business. very nice.

i have a skein of worsted+ (it's not quite bulky but close), hand-dyed looking acrylic that is just gorgeous and i don't know what to do with it. i was thinking beret so i made http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library ... ch-beret-4 but it's just not doing it for me (even after recalculating because of yarn differences).
the yarn varies from frog green to black to sapphire blue and back. i only have one skein, no way to get more.
any suggestions? i have a gajillion pairs of gloves and wrist warmers already, or i would do that.

Sounds like maybe it'd be good for a cowl?

i may just have to do that. IJDI, you are so on it- the last thing i made was a cowl!!

i gave the beret one more try and it just didn't work. so i am unraveling and stashing my beautiful yarn and going off to make a vest instead. enough is enough.

The vest is terrifying. I've made a few sweaters and frogged them all, but this one actually looks possible.

(alternatively, it also may end up frogged and in the lonely yarn box alongside the dyed yarn)

I finished something! Like a month ago... but here is a picture. It is a blanket for my "nephew", normal baby blanket size (as in the same size as my old baby blanket). All the edges are hemmed and the stripes are grey, not white. The Pattern was super easy to follow and SO boring to knit but I wanted something simple looking. The parents love it, hopefully the kid will like it too.

I love the minimalist checkerboard design of the blanket, Pi! That looks like quite the feat. Great job!

that hat gets me every time!! i love it!

I was just looking at youtube videos because i finally found a hat pattern that seems to be working (and it's going to get really cold again soon and i need to be prepared)- it has some beautiful decreases and i just wanted to be sure i was doing them correctly (the purl bee's thank you hat, if you're curious- the one with the tassel. jury is still out about whether the tassel is going to happen or not.). I watched the video and was completely dumbfuzzled. More videos show that apparently, I knit continental. Non continental knitting, you tie my brain in knots. It's times like this that I wish I had learned from other people. Although, to be fair, the only people I've ever knit with all did continental too (my friend who learned in Italy, and my Irish grandmother).

Which videos are you looking at? I love those from KnittingHelp :

k2tog http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9BT6MakKQbY

ssk http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RULNZc_nYSI

I don't knit continental so can't really help there.

ha, it was another video from that site that made me realize i apparently do continental (of maybe i just sort of do- the decrease there looks kind of weird and loopy to me too). I have the decreases all sorted, btw, it is just funny to look at these videos and be like "say WHAT?! i do not understaaaaaand!" i think maybe it is also a left handed person problem. thanks for linking though!

Yeah, I look at those videos and don't understand them since I knit noncontinental. Being left-handed also will make everything different.

Thank you, torque! Yes, they're all from patterns, I definitely couldn't come up with them on my own. If you're on ravelry search for saraek-she designs some great stuff!
