Welcome to Interwoven my new knitting blog. I hope to chronicle my adventures in the world of fiber and perhaps a bit of my personal life as well.
A bit about me. I've been knitting since I was about 6 years old. So long that I cannot remember learning how to do it, but I'm pretty sure my mother taught me. A neighbor and one of my brothers' girlfriend's (now his wife) also had a hand in refining my skills. Now many years later knitting is what keeps me sane, calms me down and gives me my creative outlet. When I had to give it up for a time due to an injury I thought I'd lose my mind. I even read books about knitting some of which I will talk about in this space (and no I don't mean technique and pattern books though I'll talk about those too).
Usually I have a couple of projects going on at any one time. Right now I'm working on a baby blanket for one of my nieces (two of them are pregnanat I've already finished one blanket), Aibhlinn from Knitty.com, and a pair of socks for my DD. The sock #2 will be finished tomorrow but I'll post a picture of the one I've aready done, as well as the baby blanket I finished, for you all to see.
Please keep checking back as the blog evolves and changes.
