On this morning's train ride, a friend asked me why I started my blog in the first place. Ostensibly, I started blogging in an effort to teach myself HTML (because when you work with numbers all day, you need something to keep your creativity chugging along). And to keep myself going with the whole knitting thing. Roughly two years later, I am neither an HTML whiz nor the most dedicated knitter on the face of the earth. So there you go.
After hotting on me for a week, Nature has decided to try to break me by colding on me. I'm mostly okay with the colding thing, as it lends itself nicely to bundling up and such. I just can't stand it when my hands get cold. So of course I must knit.
Hey, it's a photo. I don't post many of those on here, and now you know why: gloves make my wrist look blurry. These will be a modified version of Savannachik's Natalya gloves, if I ever get them done. They're in Artyarns Supermerino, colorway 105, which is incredibly lush and fondle-riffic. I'm about halfway through the first glove, so expect this pair to be finished sometime around Spring 2007.
