Since I currently can’t knit due to a broken wrist, I decided I would start a blog about my knitting odyssey. It all really started at age nine, when my Mom taught me to crochet to get me out of her hair. After crocheting a lot of granny squares and making some obnoxious 70′s clothing, I decided to try my hand at knitting. Since I didn’t know anyone who knitted I got a book and taught myself. Of course the first thing I made was a sweater, well more or less a sweater. I knitted 2 large and 2 small squares in a basket weave pattern. sewed them together and then crocheted a long chain for a draw string at the bottom to make it fit. Luckily Mom had made us learn to sew, so I understood clothing construction. After that I continued to knit more than crochet, though every once and a while I would go back to exclusively crocheting. Through the years I learned to spin and weave, but my passion is still knitting.
