My second project got off to a good start, but by the time I found my stride the seasons were changing and it was too warm to carry knitting around with me all the time. I just put it down and never picked it back up.
Now, also thanks to Merav, I have completed my first project! A chunky cowl. you can find the pattern on her blog. It only took me 4 days to finish it and I think I'm going to do about 5 more. I love it! So does my sister, who finally got the scarf she was promised a year ago.
Go make one!
