About Me

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.
