No knitting after 11:30pm. Really. Trust me on that. You will NOT like it when you discover that you have to tink part of your work.

Yeah, so I took my first knitting lesson on Saturday. I knitted a swatch on Saturday in class and another one after class. I got bored with just knitting a swatch and so decided to jump in with both feet.

Ad so yesterday evening after the headache and Usna angst, I started my first project. I'm making a fairly simple cowl with a four round repeat. My only mod is that I cast on a bunch of extra stitches cause I like my cowls loose and slouchy. It's going pretty well -- I found a cool method for joining on YouTube that totally helped me avoid laddering (and if I hadn't inadvertently cast on an extra stitch that I decided to k2tog in the next row you'd never know where the join is) and it's progressing pretty well.

Until this afternoon when I discovered that I'd somehow messed up one of my row counts. It was the very late night knitting frenzy.

The good news is that I only had to tink back about 3/4 of a round. Found the miscount and fixed it. Now I'm making progress again and am past the point where I found the error before. :)

Pictures will follow eventually.
