First post

Gotta love the first pirst, in which I pretty much talk to myself. As if I don’t do enough of that anyway….

Hi! I’m Chelsey, I’m eighteen and a freshman in college in Atlanta. I have a passion for literature, French, French Literature and knitting. A lot of knitting. I’m attempting to start a knitting club with my friends up here.

Right now I’m working on a Lizard Ridge Afghan which will probably take me the next million years. No, actually I’ve six squares done right now and I’ve been working on it since March. I do a square in between projects.

I name my squares as well. Pictured above are Skyline, The Jungle Book, A Mid-Summer Night’s Dream and the first bit of Carnivale. I also have The Secret Garden and Under The Sea that I’ll post pictures of once I find camera batteries.

Right now the in-between is my first pair of socks for me, using the basic pattern from The Yarn Harlot’s Book . I stole it from the Knitting Closet of Doom at home. My mother shall never miss it. Great book, I read most of it in a night and the rest on the ride up here.

I knit a pair of socks from The Knitter’s Handy Book of Patterns for my best friend last year, but not myself. It’s difficult to size them right for me because my leg swells up a lot so they have to be, like, ginormous. Sigh

Today, though, I got ditched by my friends (not really, but had time to myself), so I took a nap and then sat down to listen to Lime and Violet 30 and knit. It was really nice, and I love those girls.

I should be working on my presentation for Shakespeare in Preformance next Thursday, but since I think I just picked a new topic that I want to run by my professors I may go back to my knitting chair! I’m listening to Notre-Dame de Pariswhich makes me want to knit delicate shawls and dance barefoot somewhere in Europe….

    oooh, I like your new blog’s colors. :)

    And that lizard ridge is going to be flippin’ gorgeous. I keep wanting to cast that on, but I think if I get any more works in progress on the needles, my head might actually explode.

    And that would be messy.

    Well, someone stole my ‘welcome to blogosphere’, so I will reinforce that with greetings from another university-goer (also 18, first year) and blogger.
