I finished my first knitting project!
I keep calling it a scarf, but I guess it is a "slouchy cowl" (or so says the pattern, anyway).
Once I got the hang of it, knitting was quite fun. And I love the seed stitch pattern...aren't all the little bumps lovely?
The yarn was Misti Alpaca Chunky, which is amazingly soft. Plus, I love how chunky yarn on big needles (size 17) knits up so quickly.
Knitting is just so freakin' cool. I mean, I poked some yarn around on some sticks and it turned into fabric. How awesome is that? So awesome.
