I am a fairly new knitter. My supervisor at the college library where I worked gave me a pair of US #8 needles, a ball of yarn, and an hour long knitting lesson as my graduation present in 2006. After graduation I spent one year travelling to five countries where I studied responses to domestic violence. I used all the airport wait times and layovers to practice my newly acquired knitting skill (while watching Bollywood movies to keep me company). By the time I got back to the US I was hooked. I’ve been knitting as fast as I can ever since. I am happiest curled up on a couch knitting while watching a looooooooong movie, preferably a Bollywood movie or more recently, Korean dramas. :)
Visit me on my blog or on my Facebook page and let’s have fun knitting!
