If you haven't heard of Ravelry, it's a social networking site for knitters, crocheters, and other "fiber artists". It allows you to post patterns and pictures of things you're working on or completed, you can post information about the yarns you use, or want, or want to get rid of. You can search for other users or patterns. I'm not yet using the site to its full potential, haven't done that much knitting yet to warrant posting, but if you're on there, feel free to friend me - I'm zandperl there as everywhere.

For Christmas I learned how to knit! The first thing I made was a hat that I really didn't like because I had no clue how to keep to a gauge and it ended up waaaaay too big. I'm currently working on my second project, gloves. This time I ripped the first one out five times before I was happy it was going to be the right size. I've finished the first hand and I'm just starting the fingers on the second hand, and I'm so much more happy with it. Afterwards I think I'm going to rip out the hat and redo it. I also want to learn how to make "glittens" - gloves with a mitten flap over the fingers - and socks.
