I started knitting Sept ’16. The first few years I learned to make shawls, socks, and sweaters by taking classes at my LYS, Silk Road Textiles. Now I can generally figure patterns out on my own. I can’t believe how much I’m enjoying knitting!! This has become a great retirement hobby. Plus I have made truly great friends. I have a knitting group in my hometown of Cincinnati and two knitting groups in my winter home of Naples, FL. I’ve added making project bags to my hobbies so that I can keep my knitting projects in fun fabrics. Since I no longer live in a winter season, I pretty much only knit with fingering weight yarn.
I like to share what I’m learning about patterns, yarn, notions, etc. all things knitting. As you can see, I love tracking my knitting projects using excel as a calendar. I still have a lot to learn and it’s fun to discover new tools. I have yet to make a seamed sweater. Nor a fade or marled sweater. This year I hope to make a brioche sweater, but I said that last year too. I like to make knitted gifts as well as items for myself.
Hope you are enjoying my blog and possibly learning a thing or two.
