Why did you first get interested in knitting?

I was always fascinated with my grandmother's knitting when I was a child.

Who taught you to knit?

My grandma, she made me wait until I was in 6th grade before she would teach me. She was an excellent teacher, and although I was enthusiastic, it didn’t really stick.

How long have you been knitting?

I always enjoyed it, but I really picked it up back in college. Once I moved to Chicago and started coming to meet ups ... that's when it became an obsession!


Hello! My name is Lisa, but in the knitting world I go by Elloknits. I’m a graphic designer by trade, and I work at an ad agency in downtown Chicago. I also have a dog, Zoey, and a man, Andrew, who often reap the benefits of my knitting addiction. :)
