Guess what?! I knitted today! My pretty bamboo knitting needles still feel awkward in my hands, but that's a matter of getting used to, I suppose. My little bit of practice has turned into a lovely light blue rectangle (cast on 12 stitches to try it out, found out that there's tons of different ways to do a cast on too) and so far, I love it. Next up: learning how to purl so I can start making the pretty V-shaped stitches.
