A couple of things.

Aloha!  I will be digging my toes into the sand and (hopefully) learning how to stand up paddle board this week, but wanted to mention a couple of things before I unplug.

First, I am so thrilled to be guest posting over at the lovely Luvinthemommyhood

My post covers how, after realizing my knitting addiction, I went from newbie to sweater knitter in a matter of weeks.  I know not everyone is as quick to obsess as I am, but hopefully it resonates with some knitters out there.  (And if you happen to be checking in from Shannon's blog, why hello there!  And thanks so much for stopping by).

Next, guess who finished her first KAL sweater just in time to pack for vacation?  Yup--and I absolutely love it.  It is destined to become my go-to layering piece, especially for sundresses.  Notes are here.  I fully intend to take proper shots (on the beach perhaps?) but until then, here's the self-portrait bathroom shot.  I match our shower curtain, how nice.

Well, I guess that's it.  Mahalo everyone...I am off to join Charlie in Hawaii.  Be back soon.

Hi Sandra :-) I just read your post on luvinthemommyhood and your description of how you learnt to knit is so similer to mine it's uncanny. My book of choice was knitting for dummies, which I went through, knitting every stitch pattern and doing increase and decrease samplers, which was the first few chapters, until I felt confident that I could tackle a real project and correct any mistakes by working them out myself - I'm rather a perfectionist! I used youtube a bit as well, especially when I knitted my first pair of socks, and discovered Ravelry very early on too. I think the similarity ends there though - you are obviously a very fast knitter; I, on the other hand, am somewhat slower lol :-) though I have changed my technique recently and have sped up considerably :-) Sorry to babble on, I was just quite excited to read your post.
