First post...

To activate yet another knitting blog. The goal is to set up a group knitting blog for PhinisheD denizens, and perhaps host knit-a-longs.

Just to confuse everyone, I am using my current nom-de-plume, thomasina (my heroine in Tom Stoppard's Arcadia). My phinished posting name, which is ancient and I would change if it didn't break continuity, is Geo.

Hiya! (from Oueesie)

What a great idea, Geo, to set up this blog!

I use 'botanicallyhip' as my login everywhere else but Phinished. I also set up a blog... botanicallyhipblogger because it was an action requested by this blog to be able to post comments.

Looking forward to knitting along with you pholks :-)

Hi Gang! This is great--thanks, Thomasina, for setting this up. I emailed Dissie Chick to look at the Phinished posts--she's also an avid knitter. I have two projects to finish before it gets warm again!!! A very late scarf (which I'm worried is hideous) for my mom, and another scarf for me. Oi.

I'm looking forward to this. :-)

I made a shawl a while ago, as my first project, but it came out too "pointy," (the bottom angle of the triangle is too acute), and the yarn I used was a way too heavy wool. Ignorance accounts for it all. However, I really like the colors and the design (my own). I was thinking of taking some pictures of it so that some record is left, and unmaking it to use the wool again, but for a rectangular wrap.

Any thoughts from the experts? I did enjoy knitting immensely, so I am eager to retake it.

Also, how can I post a photograph of it, either here or on PhinisheD, so I can show you?
