So I have begun knitting, and so far I am having a lot of fun with it! I started with a little practice swatch (20 stitches across) and tried stockinette, garter, single stitch ribbing, and two stitch ribbing just to get a feel for the process. Then once I learned how to cast off on my practice swatch, I began knitting a scarf! I'm not using a pattern or anything, I just cast on 30 stitches and am using garter stitch for the whole thing so I can practice tension and the art of not-screwing-up. My little scarf is about 15 inches long now!

For those of you that knit, what are you working on/what do you have planned for this season? If any of you guys have retro or retro look patterns you have made and can recommend I am all ears! For those of you who don't, have you seen any cute vintage style sweaters for sale anywhere? I would love to know if any brands out there are making 40's inspired sweaters!
