The books are overdue and the goats are underfed

Over the last two weeks, I have knitted two scarves.  This is momentous because I have only been knitting for about a month… after first trying to learn to knit two years ago.  Thanks to a crafty coworker (who urged me to bring my needles to work so she could help me figure out where I was going wrong) and, I got the hang of casting on, knit stitches, purl stitches, and binding off.  With these skills in hand (and access to free patterns via Ravelry), I was able to knit these two scarves:

The gray one is Alex’s scarf. The pink scarf will go to my sister. (How do you like the model? It’s Corduroy!)

I still have to learn how to increase and decrease, as well as knit in the round. Then I can really cook! (I have so many projects in mind! The limited skills of my fingers is frustrating. Without learning these three things, I am limited to just rectangles — or scarves. I want to be able to make hats, cowls, sweaters, gloves, socks, toys, … !)

My classes ended on December 22nd… so I’ve been trying to keep myself busy. (This was my last semester of library school! As soon as all of my grades are entered, I will be awarded with a Master’s degree in Library & Information Science!)

…I think I may read a book next. (Gasp!)
