Humble Beginnings

so i was doing some Spring cleaning and thought it should include my stash. it was a good idea cause it was pretty disorganized and honestly, i couldn't even remember what i had tucked away. so, when i came across a ziploc bag with these items in it, i was instantly brought back to where i began my whole knitting journey...

it was my first time in a LYS and i really didn't know what i was doing AT ALL. i knew i wanted to make something, i knew i wanted Blue Sky Alpacas yarn, and i knew i needed needles. i ended up with 3 hanks of the organic cotton in 'willow' and a Plymouth bamboo circular needle, size 8. they gave me a free ruler, put it all in a cute bag, and sent me on my merry way! i had NO IDEA what i would do with any of it.

enter my great friend, who had been knitting for a few years and was trying to get me 'hooked'. she recommended getting the book 'Baby Knits for Beginners' by Debbie Bliss. so i did. i picked out the boatneck sweater and started knitting some basic stockinette. then, i started doing projects for Blue Sky (all those sweet baby hoodies and a few others) and it got put in a bag for 'later'. well, that was about a year or so ago and i have found it and i finished up the front. i am going to finish this project so i can add a FO to my list. besides, it's such a shame to see that yummy yarn just sitting there with no one to love it!

Yay for dusting off old projects!
Maybe someday I'll even finish the old Celtic Cardigan... maybe...

Praying for a baby to wear that sweet little sweater when it's done! You go girl!

Happy knitting-
