Some of the stitches
I'm really not intending

And here's the first

And here's the first thing I knitted in 2002, a pillow for Caroline's room. The pattern's from Rebecca 13; the yarn is Classic Elite Maya, a 50/50 wool/llama blend that I think is no longer available. If, in my first year of hosting a monthly Stitch & Bitch, I mended, quilted and made curtains, in the second year knitting took over, and now that we're about to start the third year (if we didn't last week), it's fully in control of my needles -- and most of the others that grace my living room on first Tuesdays.
