Knitwhitties: A Little Knitting Nothing

I adore simple pleasures. They are the last refuge of the complex. - Oscar Wilde

You like me! You really, really like me! Sorry, I... couldn't resist. But Lucia over at the Knitting Fiend has posted the results of the blog contest, and I came in second in the Best New Knitting blog category. Wow! I'm so grateful! For those of you who liked and voted for my blog, I can't thank you enough. And for those I begged, bribed, and generally browbeat into voting for my blog, thank you, too.

A great big thank you goes to Lucia for putting this contest together. I really enjoyed reading all of the blogs, including Anne's at Knitspot, Crazy Aunt Pearl, and The Panopticon.

On the knitting front, when I'm home, I work on the vintage velvet. I'm trying to knit more loosely so that there is no recurrence of the yarn snapping incident. This leads to a LOT of worming. A lot. An awful lot. I'm considering frogging it, and waiting until I'm a more skillful knitter to try to pull this one off. On the other hand, I've completed 5 full pattern repeats and I would hate to have to start over. And when will I ever be skillful enough? When I'm not at home, I'm working, er, diligently, on the to-be-felted bag. So things are moving along a-pace.
