When did you first start knitting/why?

Sometime in 2007.

Who taught you to knit?

I guess I’m self taught–

Do you knit English/American style, German/Continental style, backwards? Left-handed? Eastern cross method? Peruvian-style? please describe.

German/Continental style

Do you have a knitting philosophy, and what is it. What helped you form your philosophy?

As long as it’s fun, and I’m challenged to try new techniques and projects, I’m in. Looking forward to learning more – can someone give me more time?

Have you ever taught someone to knit?

Maybe an assist, but I’m not confident enough to help anyone—

What is your very favorite knitting book and why?

Knitting in Plain English, Maggie Righetti – A nice introductory book – well organized – a good reference book for me. And, any book with Noro designs – great colors & photography

Do you knit for a living/have your own business? Tell us about it.

I knit when I have a block of time when I can concentrate on what I’m doing.

What projects are you working on now?

I’m making a simple scarf pattern, and thinking about tackling a vest…I’m almost ready.

What is your very favorite yarn?

? I’m in love with all of them—there’s the perfect yarn for every project.

What is the best thing you ever knit?

Each new project shows progress for me—so right now, as I learn a new stitch, a new project becomes my favorite.

What is the worst thing you ever knit?

A scarf with two fibers—they kept getting twisted and tangled, so I quit and tried something else—so many projects, so little time, you know.

Why do you like to knit?

I’m ready to branch out and try something new.

When do you knit?

Usually in the evening and on weekends.

What is your favorite part of the knitting process?

Seeing the patterns evolve, trying a new yarn, feeling the needles and fiber working together…

How long have you been knitting?

Just a couple of years.

What do you like about our guild?

Brand new member—first meeting coming up in Feb.

Do you engage in other Fiber Arts?

Actually, I’ve been making beaded jewelry for about seven years—really a fan.
