out great, but once I had that finished I got a little excited, (read obsessed)
and started knitting other things. Immediately I made a twisted head band,
tried to learn how to pearl, learned to knit in the round, and made another, larger cowl scarf. After all that I then picked up a crochet needle and learned that.
