Auditioning This Week

Not much mojo for auditions this week! Auditioned too many patterns before Stitches South. But, I am considering making a Hitofude Cardigan. I was inspired after trying one on at Stitches South and seeing Megan's on the Stockinette Zombie Video Podcast. If you haven't yet, check out Amy and Megan on that podcast.

My First Time

When did you become a real knitter? What project was your first tough lesson learning knitting project? Do you still have it? Did it work out? What did you learn in the process? Please go to the Ravelry Group and post about your first time. Let's remember how far we've come and encourage new knitters to try new things! 

My First Time was the Pimlico Shrug
This looks so terrible on me that I don't even have any photos!
