I like to try new types of knitting. I've done some color work, brioche, and lace as well as traditional knitting. I enjoy using novelty yarns and alpaca wool. I've also done some cotton crochet and Tunisian crochet.
I started in junior high, but never did much with it until about 5 years ago. My interest really sparked when I discovered Steven Be and the Yarn Garage about 1 1/2 years ago in Rosemount / Minneapolis, MN. Hence my love of novelty yarns!
Knitachallenge is my Ravelry name because I'm always trying something new.
I'm a veteran knitter and new spinner. I mostly just love fiber! And it's even better with friends. I have many grandchildren to knit for as well as indulging in a few things for myself. I look forward to meeting up with everyone as often as I can.
This is not only a great way to meet new people with common interests, but a good way to be introduced to the 'community' and all it has to offer through chatting with those who've been here for years and others that are new to the area.
