I started knitting about three years ago. I recently started trying lace-style patterns which have been really fun.
I'm still something of a beginner but I love making large afghans, baby blankets, beanies and baby booties. I typically keep the afghans but all the others I give away.
My sister and I picked up a "learn to knit kit" at a craft store and spent hours one day reading and watching knitting videos on you-tube. I've purchased a numbers of books, including "Stitch and Bitch" and just try to learn as I go. My grandmother loved needle crafts of all kinds and she inspired me to pick up knitting.
There are more than one I can name! There are always new kinds of stitches to learn and ways to improve technique. I just want to learn it all!
New to the South Bay and looking for new friends that enjoy knitting. I'm 32, married, no kids, one cat and one dog. I work in the financial industry and commute to San Mateo during the week.
