I started when I found my mother's knitting needles. I was about 8. She never learned, so I started fiddling with the yarn until I found a picture book from the library that showed how to cast on. It took a while, and many errors before I learned, but I haven't put it down.
I also crochet...I actually enjoy both, but prefer crocheting.
Already, I've learned that this group is supportive and friendly. I am inspired by the variety of interests and crafts members share. I enjoy listening, looking, and sharing my own projects. Members are so open, and there is sense of collegiality and pride in crafting with yarn that I really love.
Not sure. I read patterns, and enjoy making items from patterns, and from my own imagination. Sometimes, I just "feel" a project coming on, and have to get it "out" with string. Know what I mean? I sometimes have a strong yearning to craft something. In this group, I know I am not the only one!
I just finished a knitted skirt...cute...a little snug. I think I may either knit or crochet a thin scarf with the left-over yarn.

I love this group. I hope to attend many more meet ups with PSKC. Thanks everyone! I don't know everyone's names yet, but at my first meet up, I felt so welcomed. Thank you to all who engaged in conversation with me...to Ericka for being so open and warm and funny :) Thanks Lady Mykele for encouraging me to follow my own knitting voice, and Tom for sharing his beautiful baby blanket, and Barbara for the tip on how to finish the edge of my skirt. And, thank you to Jackie for teaching me with a lesson from your Ipad (you are tech saavy, and generous, Jackie!!!). Thank you, too, to others who smiled, and checked in with me, and shared funny and interesting stories. Love the group!
