I Knit, Therefore I Am


I'm knitting.

Yes, I am actually knitting. No, this isn't a joke. April Fool's Day was over a while ago. I AM KNITTING!

I'm making Aestlight. I recently received the pattern as a gift and after my sudden epiphany the other day, I just cast on the first stitch and let my hands take over. I'm working on the garter triangle right now, so this isn't mentally stimulating, but at least it's a change from all those granny squares I've been working on for the past few months.

The pattern calls for a fingering weight yarn but I'm using my Crofter DK, that I bought back in January. This yarn is relatively thin compared to the usual DK weight yarns so it seems to suit the pattern so far. I didn't even do a gauge swatch for this - the gauge was spot on when I started knitting it up.

Well, don't I feel like a knitting prodigy ;)
