I joined a few days ago, but I only now received my yarn (Debbie Bliss's Cotton Cashmere) and needles (Crystal Palace Bamboo straights, size 5) for my Midwest Moonlight Scarf.
I've been knitting for more than 2 years on and off now, and am currently working on finishing my first pair of socks and yet another scarf while juggling sophomore year university studies. I hail from the Boston, MASS area, where the weather can't decide half the time whether it wants to be warm or cold, and I dream of making Seattle my home someday.
I'm looking forward to knitting along with everyone . . . I have to say, there're some really lovely scarves here- what an inspiration :)
