Auditioning This WeekNot 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.

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!

Wish I had chosen a more exciting yarn, but it's very lightweight and will be a great Spring Cowl. I haven't weaved in the ends yet, so I'll post my pictures as soon as I'm able.
