Oh, there are a lot of updates, but I’m racing my computer to dying (I’m winning), so I’ll keep it to the most important thing: I’m knitting a new sweater. I haven’t knit a sweater since last year’s and that was such a huge undertaking. This one is a little more manageable, but still really beautiful. I’ve kind of been tracking my progress on tumblr. And having a project at home, that is positive and fun and productive, that will make me proud and happy, is very valuable. So yes, I will admit it.
My name is Alison and I am a hobbyist. I like to tinker. I like to stay up too late doing math about how long my arms are. They’re proportionally too long for my body, but luckily still a normal length for human arms. I also like to read ahead on instructions, over and over even after I’ve memorized them. I like to follow rules but then break them for positive purposes, and then only when I know what I’m doing enough to ensure success (and this is still almost exclusively applicable to my knitting; I love rules in general and am easily governed).
Also it’s allergy season and I have a stack of hats about 10 deep I need to make a plan for.
