We are now a two |pûrl| household. Tod's is perl, the programming language. Mine is purl, as done with needles.

What I'm saying is that I figured out how to knit this week. I did a simple garter stitch scarf worked in wool and fancy eyelash yarn for texture and now I've advanced to making ribs. Knit two, purl two...

Knitting is a lot more fun that I ever imagined. I get to the end of a row and think "OK, just one more row, then I'll stop" and then end up with another 20. It's rather like swimming that way. I always end up doing more laps that I plan.

If you think you're getting a holiday present and you want a say in what color it is, please place your order now. It's going to be a scarf...I haven't figured out hats yet.

Crocheting was like that for me, but knitting is far prettier I think. I had a lot of bookmarks and scarves.

I started knitting a while ago too, and I'd agree that it encourages compulsive behaviour. I can knit and purl, but only for a whole row, I haven't gotten my head around alternating stiches yet.
