Knit-a-versary

A year ago today, if you would have told me I would be picking up 398 stitches in a sweater, I would’ve laughed at you.
Today, though, I have been officially knitting for a year!  Granted, I could only cast on and somehow make a slipknot, but, you have to start somewhere.  I can’t believe how far I’ve come with this new passion.  I’m so glad I decided on a whim to start knitting.  I’ve picked up my needles and haven’t looked backed.  And I don’t intend to.
Since last year, I’ve made a ton of small things and am starting to head on to the big stuff, like my sweater.  It’s exciting!  Soon, I want to learn cables and how to turn a heel on a sock.  I’ve got a long way to go, and there is always something new to learn in knitting.  I think that’s the beauty of this craft:  the urge to push yourself, the prospect of a new garment, the pay off.  I freaking love it.  Knitting has become such a big part of me, and I wouldn’t have it any other way.
