Why did you first get interested in knitting?

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.

Who taught you to knit?

My mom.

How long have you been knitting?

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!

What Mary Kay B. is saying about this Meetup Group

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.
