Knitting is my life!!!

Not really...  not even close.  But since this is a knitting blog I figured my first title should make a statement that would grab the reader's attention and make them want to read on to see just who this Knitting Knut is!

I'm a 52 year old woman who works in corporate America and desperately needs a creative outlet in my life.  I've gone through various phases... macrame & crocheting in the 70s, plastercraft & counted cross stitch in the 80s, gardening in the 90s and in the last decade I've dabbled in photography, and scrapbooking.  But I don't think that I've ever had the passion for any of the others that I do for yarn & knitting.  It really has become an obsession for me. I knit everywhere I go and there's always a small project in my purse.

I've been knitting for about 5 years and started as most of us do (except my friend Pam) making scarves.  I made HUNDREDS of scarves out of all kinds of fuzzy & fluffy yarns.  They were fun to make and fun to give as gifts (hopefully they were fun to receive too!) but it got old after awhile and I came to the point where I felt like I had mastered the basic and it was time to move on.  So I took a sock class and it was all over...  I was hooked!

In the last year I've not only made socks, but I've also learned how to felt and made several awesome bags.  I also made my first sweater (more like a coat though) and it turned out amazingly well even if I do say so myself!

I'm so energized by these successes that I thought it might be fun to blog about knitting.  Since I'm still somewhat of a novice and learning new things every day I can to keep track of my successes as a reminder of the progress I'm making, and screw-ups to remind me what not to do again.

So here it is...  my first blog ever!

  1. You can even make massive earnings in the lower leagues and fewer apparent markets too. Because the more obscure the market, the more chance the bookmakers will get the costs wrong. "There's so many obscure or undercapitalized originators who are putting out nice work, who clearly have an edge, and, yet, no one conscious of} who 온라인카지노 they are, despite their apparent potential," he added. "We are at all times searching for that person. Always. We've been lucky sufficient to rent some severe expertise utilizing Twitter and have seen folks develop into integral elements of our team while making us higher."
