Getting Started on the Knitting Blog Phenomenon

I caved and am finally starting a blog just for my knitting.

This is just a sign of my long, slow descent into old yarn lady. I may only be 22 right now, but if I’m unmarried by forty, I will probably have a house with several cats and rooms full of yarn. I’m thinking at least one room for wools, another for cottons. Maybe Cascade 220 can have its own room. Novelty yarns get the hall closet. I’m not too fond of them.

Current WIPs:
A set-in sleeve sweater – needs seaming then DONE!
Booga Bag #2 – I-cord done, just a few rows from picking up and starting in the round
Coronet from Knitty – one repeat of the cable done, my first cable ever
Shapely Tank – Six inches in
Clover Wrap from SnB Nation – swatching

I also have yarn ready and at attention for:

And am lusting after:
A cute but light wrap or shrug.


About Kristy Lamb

I recently finished my PhD in genetics at Yale and am currently a postdoc at Weill Cornell Medical College of Cornell University in NYC. I love science, people, and the fiber arts. We'll call it my muse. I taught myself to knit over Christmas break in 2002, when I was home from my sophomore year in college and was terribly bored. Despite starting with three big mistakes (very long aluminum needles, a very bad Coats & Clark how to knit book, and Lion Brand Homespun), I kept at knitting, even after that first 1/2 hour trying to tie a slipknot. Science...seems to be much the same process as the above.
