Recently I discovered I have a passion for knitting. I know, I know, it shocked me too. A few years ago I tried my hand at the craft but a few garter projects and one pair of seamed fingerless mitten later, I lost interest. Fast forward to November 2014. A friend at work suggested a lunchtime knitting group and I thought, why not. I had a ribbed scarf that had been hibernating for more than 3 years, so I figured I'd plod through that during lunch and enjoy the company. Then, something marvelous happened. I finished the scarf, and tried a dishcloth; finished the dishcloth, tried some seamed stockings for ornaments; finished those and went to mittens, and more mittens, then hats and socks and scarves and more socks and OH MY GOD I'M A KNITTER! Being entirely self taught, the internet was a Godsend. The BEST resource I found was VeryPink Knits. Her YouTube Channel is a treasure trove of basics, techniques, tutorials and answers to questions you never knew to ask. Of course, Ravelry is also amazing. I'm very data oriented so having a resource like Ravelry blows my mind.
SO, here I am, 8 months after that first lunch meeting. I'm having so much fun and learning so many new things I wanted a way to chronicle my journey. So it begins :)
