The six state sweater

If you recall, I started Rogue in February of this year. It's been picked up, knitted, put down, picked up and knitted, put down, etc, etc, etc.

This sweater has been knitted in Minnesota, Iowa, Nebraska, Colorado, Kansas and Massachusetts. In fact, it's been to Iowa several times, most recently this past weekend.

I have finally reached the hood. I think I'm coming down the home stretch. (Of course, that will leave the seaming up...)

I spun up an ounce of the pretty roving while we were camping this weekend.

Camping always makes me want to get out the spindle.

Last, but not least, my carry around sock.
This is Alpaca Sox yarn, and I'm almost to the heel.

It's good to have a sock to knit while you're sitting in a choir concert. You can knit in the dark.

It's been raining here since I returned home from work. Brightest room in the house is the kitchen - thus the sock is keeping the garden veg warm.

That shade of blue is beautiful.

I wish I could knit. I used to crochet when I was young. My grandmother taught me, but unfortunately I never learned to do anything (sewing, crocheting, cooking) as well as she did. I picked up cross-stitching again a few years ago, but it was hard on my eyes and I had to concentrate, which since I was multi-tasking, didn't work very well.

I'd love to learn to knit though. Any suggestions for someone who knows nothing?
