Andoa by Berroco

Well, I succumbed to the sweater lady.  I cast on last weekend and began knitting andoa and I love it.  It is an easy pattern, lovely stitch grouping, and hopefully will turn out in the end.  I am just on the  back of the piece and I know that there is some stuff coming up that I have never done (like decreases and whatnot) so hopefully I will be able to figure it out.  Thankfully I have both MWK and Ravelry and the lady at the yarn store that talked me into doing this to help me if I need it.  So stay tuned, more pics as the progress goes on.

hello, my name is Brad and I am a knittacrocheaddict

Oh my...where to begin.

My WIP's have grown now to include a sweater (have yet to cast on, but will be by the weekend, have just been reading through the pattern).

I am addicted.  I guess it is not such a bad thing, it could be booze or meth, or something like that, but no, it is the feel of fiber running through my hands.  I have noticed that I have cut down on smoking...I am too interested in getting the next row of the pattern done to take the time to go outside and smoke.

I am also addicted to MWK and Ravelry.....I spend SOOOOOOOOO much time on those sites....of course it is justified in my mind by the fact that I am learning something every time I log on and read the boards....even if it is just who everyone thinks is a hunky actor  :)

So, my WIPS keep growing...yes I do work to finish them, and the day will come soon when another one is cast off or finished.....yay.

So today is a breather.....I did not do much this morning....today I am actually going to do some real work at the office  :)  and tonight I have to go to bed early so I can get up at 4:00 for a meeting in Topeka...ahhh




........................................caston and knit & crochet like crazy   :)
