"Please Allow Me to Introduce Myself"

I had a blog, once, in 9th grade, when it was extremely popular to rant about how "no one understands me!" and "my life is sooooo hard" and to assume that the internet is a Very Small Place. I'm probably lucky no serial killers read my last blog, because I'm pretty sure it would have been ridiculously easy to track me down and that would be that.

After the blogging gap, I'm feeling a bit awkward, so forgive me if I sound like a moron.

I'm a college student in Manhattan, majoring in history, and I've been knitting for about a year now. It has completely taken over my life. No, really.

I do not have a digital camera, yet, (I know, I'm the very last person on the planet to get one) but I do have a birthday coming up, so you should expect pictures - lots of them, hopefully - very soon.

I like knitting blogs with pictures. I like taking chances with my knitting. I just finished my first sweater about a month ago (the fabulous Starsky cardigan from Winter 2005 Knitty). I wore it the next day, and my friend said, "I would have picked something easier" and didn't that just make me feel smug. Indeed.

I hope that this will be a place for me to talk about my knitting and to connect with other knitters (knowing how friendly all the knitters in blogland are, it is my greatest fear that this blog will be a total failure and no one will ever read it and I will basically suck at life).

My favorite blogs EVER are Franklin Habit's The Panopticon and Eunny Jang's See Eunny Knit. Franklin is truly "spit chocolate milk out of your nose" funny, and Eunny is a golden goddess of colorwork. No lie.

Welcome to the blogging world, Amelia. I especially like you because this post title made me think of "Sympathy for the Devil"

Thanks for the lovely comments on Venezia. I am now working on the ends so I can get that post that everybody wants up.

*sings* hoo hoo! hoo hoo!
