Why did you first get interested in knitting?

My cousin got one of those "knitting" kits with the pegs and hoops and picks, and I had fun doing it, but decided that making tubes was pretty limiting and thought learning how to knit with needles would be more fun. And it is!

Who taught you to knit?

I learned from Allyson Dykhuizen, who runs The Sweatshop of Love. She did a great job teaching me - it was very relaxed.

How long have you been knitting?

I've been knitting since January of 2007.


My name is Rachel, and I love to knit, read fanfiction, and lift improbably heavy things.
