I knit a little as a kid - just some legwarmers. A few years ago, I took classes through the Chicago Park Department and learned to increase, decrease and knit in the round. And I bought the Stitch'n Bitch book and a ton of other knitting books though used books websites.
Recently, for about 40 minutes on "The Death of Knitting" project.
For a year I've been working on a project which I call "The Death Of Knitting": a doll outfit knitted on size "5 zeros" needles. I'm looking forward to knitting with bigger yarn and in a group as I used to do when I took Park Department classes!
It's inspiring to knit with others and see what they are making. I enjoy this meetup; locations seem to work for me, a Lakeview resident.
