I'm starting this blog to document all of my knitting progress, inspiration and projects!
I learned how to knit back in high school--what seems like ages ago--but I recently picked it back up. It was during one really gloomy winter in upstate NY back in 2008. The only thing that could lift my spirits was to start a new hobby. All we could do was stay inside, all bundled up in blankets, thick socks and slippers, drinking hot beverages to keep warm. Knitting seemed like a perfect addition to my already holed up state of being...
Naturally, I started with a scarf for my wonderful husband. It turned into a tube. It didn't take me long to figure out how to avoid that in the future. Other scarfs were knitted & purled up in no time. Then, I slowly added a few patterns here and there, but made many mistakes. Family members forgave me.
Unfortunately, I can't find any of the pictures of my earliest projects. There were several scarves, three baby blankets, and a set of placemats. Notice how all I could do was knit flat things.
