i finished my first plain jane slipper at work last night. i learned things like: knitting with dpns (fun and frustrating all at once), yarn over (only sort of…), and the three needle bind off (totally awesome).

i will hopefully make the other one soon, but to keep my wandering mind occupied, i started on dina’s hat instead. this is my first attempt with circular needles and so far it is dreamy. i knitted several rounds while watching the constant gardener today. all diversions from the paper i need to be writing. but to be fair, i did read a chapter and a half of a book for school before i started knitting today. so there.
