Welcome to the Knitting Sanitarium!

This is about the fourth attempt I've made at starting a blog, but it's the first one that I actually like the appearnce of. It's also the first attempt I've made since graduating, so I think that means the chances of its being updated regularly and having interesting content are about 1000 times higher than they were while I was still a student. Real knitting content to start within a few days, I promise.

In the meantime, a little bit about me: My name is Meredith. I live in Arlington, VA and work in Washington, DC. I learned to knit several years ago, but didn't really start seriously knitting until about a year ago (when school quit trying so hard to beat me into the ground). Since then, I've zealously started rather more projects than I've finished, including a sweater, gloves, corset, and hat. Currently, I'm on a mission to maintain a constant number of WIPs, which means finishing one of the neglected projects before I go wantonly casting on for any of the zillions of ideas flitting around my head.

I leave you with a picture of the finished object of which I am proudest: the Flying Squirrel.

What yarn did you use for the Flying Squirrel? I know you told me, but I'm forgetful. I just remember that it felt wonderful to touch, almost like Dale Baby Ull, but a lot thicker.
