How long have you been knitting, crocheting or spinning?

Two weeks

What else do you love besides knitting?

Writing, belly dancing, vegan cooking, brewing kombucha, reading, dogs

What do you want most out of this group?

Fellowship and advice/instruction.

How would you describe your knitting/crochet style? (i.e. monogamous or multiple projects on the needles; a process knitter or product oriented)

Desperate, but aspiring to military precision.

Tell us about your current project(s)...

I am still practicing stitches by making swatches before I get into any real projects. I made two sweet swatches, one garter stitch and one stockinette. I wanted to start with a rib stitch scarf but need help to produce a decent rib stitch swatch.


I am a brand-new registered nurse who can knit and crochet. My next challenge is to learn how to knit on circular needles. I live in Kensington, Brooklyn.

All the experienced knitters were very welcoming to me, a newbie, and I was thrilled to be there.
