Back in June I decided to teach myself how to knit with the help of youtube. My mom tried before but I didn't stick with it and everything she showed me went out the window.
I can sew enough to know how a sewing machine works as long as I have a manual handy.

I can also crochet just fine, FYI, yet so many patterns are labeled for knitting and there was a hole in my repertoire. So with a set of circular needles and a will to make something, anything, I picked a blanket that not only changed colors but changed stitch with every color.
Keeping it simple, my friends, keeping it simple. At least I didn't dive right into socks or sweaters, right? I'm not completely insane.
I'd love to proclaim that 7 months later it's complete. Alas, that would be a lie. And lying is bad.
Instead I'll say Hey look! Progress!
