Another Intro!

I'm Janis, and I just started reading MoA a few days ago, and yesterday found this KA, and had one of those, "whoa, coincidence!" type moments. I'm really, really loving the book so far, and I'm trying not to devour it, as I tend to do.

It hasn't inspired any knitting projects yet, but I have been spinning a lot more. I was so impressed by the ease and seeming casualness of Igraine whipping out the spindle. It was always much more of an "I'm going to spin now!" thing for me, not just a regular part of my day but an event. I'm trying to change that, by keeping my spindle and fibre close at hand. So far it's working. I'm spinning more, and better, just by not making a big deal of the whole thing.

Most of you are doing shawls, it seems, and that sounds like a good idea. I have a ridiculous amount of lace weight yarn just sitting around so I'm thinking this is the way to go. Also, I'm not buying any yarn this year. (If you saw my stash, you'd understand.) But what colour! And pattern! Those are the hard parts.

I'd love to do a lace cap as well, and some tapestry-inspired gauntlets, but let's face it, there's a deadline here. And I guess it HAS inspired some projects, I just didn't realise it yet!

Anyway, I look forward to reading more, knitting, and chatting with all of you!
