Startitis and the Detroit Motor Show

This is what startitis looks like:

I've been keeping track of the North American International Auto Show (now over) while starting project after project. I love combining knitting with cars, so here we go.

Idiot Knitting

I'm sure you guys know what I mean when I say "Idiot Knitting". It's the stuff you grab when your boyfriend has rented a movie you really want to see, or when you want to be able to chat while you knit, while you wait for your dinner at a restaurant (Try this sometime.

Best Tuesday Ever.

I am an EXCEPTIONALLY hard person to shop for, present-wise. I am extremely picky about my clothing, I have far too much stuff as it is, and when you ask me what I want, I say "Money or a KnitPicks gift certificate." No one ever gets me anything I like. Except my best friend and my father.

New Year, New Blog!

Well, well, well, starting the New Year off right!

 

I'm pleased as punch to be a part of this lovely KnitPicks community, and I feel like it's a good omen that my first blog post here should go up on the first day of 2011!
