it begins...

so i woke up this morning and i said to myself "it's friday, good day to start a knitting blog."

no, actually i'm starting this blog out of necessity because i need a place to show my designs. i never really intended to start trying to become a knit/crochet designer, but i can't say it's something i never thought about. i love creating knew things with yarn, and sharing my creations with other people. so it appears this shall be my forum for that :)
