My grandma taught me to knit and crochet when I was a child. I did a bit of crochet when I was younger. I thought knitting was too hard. About 8 or 9 years ago a friend of mine was knitting her heart out making scarf after scarf. I decided to learn again. She showed me how to cast on and it came back to me. My first project, this time around was a scarf that I embellished with with crocheted flowers. It is stunning. I don't think that I missed a stich. Can we say beginner's luck? I'm not that good in reality and I can frog and tink with the best of them.
I love natural fibers. Silk, wool, cotton, blends. All feel so wonderful when they run thru my fingers.
I'd probably make an afghan. I'd love to wrap myself in cashmere.
I'm sure that knitting will be a lifelong passion. I've been at it for more than 3 years.
I'm Kelly. I moved to Austin in April 2013. Knitting has been my lifeline. It's been a way to meet people and get out of the house. I live with my husband Bob, my son Nathaniel and our "babies"
Great people. It's a joy to be part of this group.
