So knitting was my gateway craft. I learned it from a co-worker in 2003 and took to it really quickly. Sadly, I plateaued at an advanced beginner stage that I can't seem to shake, especially now that I am so obsessed with sewing. I don't have a huge stash of needles but have enough that they could benefit from an organizer and shouldn't be shoved in a tote bag, getting caught in my skeins of yarn.
And now that I am conquering my to do list, this project got the time it deserved. I used some fabric from my stash and some lovely twill tape I received as a Christmas present for the tie.
