Rowan Makes Blogging Debut!

This is Rowan. Blogging. Happy Blogiversary! Its true. I only know how to knit. I can't cast on. Don't really know how to purl. But I did make this cute little scarf and hat set (oh, and I love teddy bears!).

Not bad for a five-year beginner. Do you know the story? I am the one who signed my sister and I up for the knitting class. She was clueless. So really, I guess you could actually thank me for this blog. And the stash. Oh, the stash. Scary, huh?

So, a knitter needs a bag. Cute, huh? Check the picture below. Here's my current work in progress.

Yes, I bought the yarn two years ago. Don't pressure me. More details to come later, but I think I'm half-way done with my sideways scarf (that I "designed" and my sister told me how to do it- I have the vision people!).

Please be kind to a rookie-blogger. I hope to be back more often than Pashy! Oh, and here's a yarny prize for those of you who correctly guessed that it would be me guest blogging today! I took those pictures for yesterday's post by the way (not bad, huh?!).

And the winner is........



P.S. Here's my blogger name..... Irishdaisy3 :)

Don't let the muggles get you down. Love, Rowan.

YAY! Rowan is blogging AND knitting? What is going on here?!

The pics are awesome, your bear is adorable and the hat and scarf set look great! (I see the orange going on there, too...)

Welcome to blogland! Looking forward to seeing more of your knitting! Perhaps a bit of stash acquisition for you in the future, too...?

Ha! I thought it was Rowan!! Congrats to Bezzie! I love the colors of your current work in progress too!

Psst. Tell your sis, Happy Blogiversary

Bezzie said...

Woo hoo! I knew it! When in doubt always pick #3 or "C"!!

Rowan, I'm going to have to get you together with Rosie the Monkey. I've been trying to teach her to knit much to Chunky's chagrin. Maybe you can give her some pointers.

Yay, Rowan knits and blogs and photographs. Your finished combo looks great - fun yarn. And did you know, you're knitting with my fave ever yarn? Love the colours, very ice-cream.
Welcome to the blogiverse and happy blogiversary to Irishgirlie :-) :-)

Rowan, knitting and blogging. Awesome!
Nice work. That yarn you're knitting with right now... it's a favorite around our house. The kitties can't resist it.

He he. . .knitting in the round is a non-purlers best friend! :)

Though I can knit, I like not to, and am currently not enjoying my Via Diagonale that is garter stitch in the round. . . too many purls!
