Knitting Origins

image

I love expressing myself. All my life I’ve done different things to do that. Writing, drawing, and many other forms of self expression.

As a result of wanting to make a blanket when I was 14-years-old, my mother taught me how to crochet. I didn’t stick with it until April of 2008, soon after (May 2011) I picked up knitting. I self-taught using books from the local library and like many others; YouTube.

I jumped head first into socks not aware of the belief that it is only for advance knitters. I did well although the socks came out too small. At the moment I don’t crochet that much. I have however moved into a new form of self expression;  spinning yarn.

I use a drop spindle I purchased from a wonderful company called Fiber Artist Supply Co. My goal in this is to eventually and consistently spin sock weight yarn. In this blog you will find my journey of this goal as well as my knitting journey. Goals in that is to make a garment for myself, tackle cables, colorwork, and anything else my heart desires. Thank you for taking the time to read this, for journeying with me, and for coming back often.
