Hi. I'm Rosa and I live in Southeast Alaska. I have been a lurker among the knitting blogs for about 6 months or so, but have just recently started to participate, so I thought I'd introduce myself. I learned to knit when I was about 10, knit a few things when I was in my early 20's (that was almost 20 years ago) and didn't pick it up again until last fall. I have really been enjoying it, and have made a few things I like, and actually use. This is my first swap/knit along. I chose the midwest moonlight scarf from Scarf Style. The yarn I chose is not quite the same weight as specified, but I think it will be fine, since size is not critical in a scarf, and I love the yarn. It is a 50% silk/50% merino blend, hand dyed by Raven Frog Arts in Sitka, AK. It is very soft, and the colors are great "Southeast Colors"--greys and blues.
Anyways, enough rambling. I am looking forward to getting started on this and getting to know you all.
