First Post!


Well this has been something that I've been meaning to do for the past 2 months!


Why am I blogging? Well the answer has to do with my insatiable obsession with knitting! I want somewhere to post pics of my finished objects (FO), frustrations over projects, joy over results and my general fixation of the craft.


For those who haven't met me yet I began knitting back when I was a teen, never got very far with it until I was in college, was insatiable for several years during and after college. Took several years off to date, get married, have some kids, buy a house and do some work. Always did some knitting here and there along the way. A sweater here, pair of mittens there, then along comes my step-mother and introduces me to felting! Well that was the beginning of my descent into this obsession!


For the past 2 1/2 years I've gone from an occasional knitted project to a list of current projects in process and several in the queue! Now in addition to knitting for my family I teach knitting, run felting workshops and am trying to sell my felted bags.


As I get better at this blogging I'll start posting pics of in process and completed projects. Rants and raves of not enough time to knit enough, other crafty projects that I get sucked into - Yeah I also quilt, scrapbook, sew, do primitive stitcheries and cross stitch - although not as obsessivly as I knit!
