Community awesomeness

Revknits has started putting together our Afghans for Afghans blanket. It’s so cool to think of this thing being a collaborative effort between 11 other knitters and myself! She’s got pictures of assembly in progress over at her blog. It’s also lovely to *do* something in memory of someone.

I finished my shrug today – I’ll get pictures of it soon. I decided the edging was probably not needed after all. I also got a lot of knitting time in sitting in the optometrist’s waiting room (again) – I’m almost done with my cardigan’s first sleeve. I’m knitting the sleeves as a halftime break from knitting the body. Sometimes, it’s fun to do things out of order.


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.
