Sweater in the Round

EZ and Ann Budd are clashing in my head. I'm knitting my first sweater, bottom up, in the round, with size 9 needles (after socks, they feel like tree trunks). It's a gorgeous shade of lilac and it's bulky, so it's going fairly quickly, but it's also going slowly. (Hey, it's Thursday. Nobody has to make sense on Thursday.) Yes, I know that when you ARE bulky you shouldn't WEAR bulky, but this will be so spectacular when it's done that nobody will even THINK the word.

Pictures would be nice, wouldn't they?

Yeah. A camera would be nice, too.

Well, the big birthday is coming up in 10 days, so maybe I'll treat myself to something cute and small. Read: not bulky.

Oh yes. Thank you, Stephanie!

Ravel my threads and call me tinked

I have nothing to write about.

This blog was probably not a good idea, because I'm not an expert at knitting and I really didn't have any words of wisdom to share.

Blogger is not too nice to those of us with Apples/Macs, so there's another reason why this didn't work out.

I do hang out on Ravelry. I am woolizard.

I had a little bit of fun here, and thank all three of you who commented.
