Getting Started

Standard

I have been knitting for about 5 or so years now. I come from a long line of fabric and yarn artists. My grandmother was a seamstress, knitter, weaver, and crocheter, my mom followed suit and now all I have left to learn is weaving. Recently a friend gave me Barbara Walker’s 1st and 2nd Treasury of Knitting Patterns and I am inspired to create some of my own patterns. I have knitted just about every type of garment there is but my first love is knitting socks. They are intricate, quick and elegant to wear. I currently am working on my first design and will post pictures and instructions asap! They are called Seed and Cable socks (I need to work on more creative names but it’s a start). Hope you enjoy!
