Challenge 1: My Team

As I hinted in my knitting post (What? You found that completely oblique? Oh well), I have decided to take the plunge and participate in a knitalong. I have selected the cleverly named, The Amazing Lace.

So, Challenge 1 is to introduce the team.

First we have me. I have been knitting for over six months. I have attempted (and completed) one lace project. I went perusing through patterns and then yarn last night. I have two (or three) patterns selected but the one I am willing to declare here today is this Crest of the wave tank top. I have gone rogue and chosen this green worsted weight cotton, in part because Kiwi, as it like to be called (I keep saying it looks more like a Sage to me, but we've moved past that) was able to join me in my spontaneity. As you can see, we are in the embryonic stages, both in our relationship and in our progress. For our tools right now we have the kind assistance of a pair of circular sevens which we expect great things of. We thank everyone for their support and encouragement as we embark on this journey.
