Woooo hooooooo!! I knitted a triangle! :)
OK, I'm a novice, and my knitting up to now has involved flat items only -- baby blanket and scarves -- some with really nice designs, but still, just squares and rectangles. So yesterday I started on the multidirectional diagonal scarf (see pattern link below, or do an image google on the name for photos). It begins with knitting a triangle, and before it was even 2" long, I was holding it up for DH and saying, "Look! It's a triangle!" You'd think I'd invented the wheel! :) He was appropriately supportive and enthusiastic about it.
Then I got into the "short rows" part of the pattern, and that really got me going -- needless to say, I worked like crazy on it and am through one skein of yarn already, and it's turning out very cool.
Probably silly to get so darned excited over a scarf but like I said, I'm a novice, so learning anything new is a huge thrill!
Next stop: socks! That should really have me jumping up and down! :)
