For many years I didn’t think I was a “real” knitter because I didn’t knit sweaters. I tried, but never got very far, and the UFO pile grew and grew. In the meantime I started knitting socks, and gloves, and other small things with twists and turns. But I still didn’t take any of it seriously.

Everything changed for me when I got up the nerve to reach out to my now recently-departed friend Cat Bordhi. Thanks in large part to her support, a little something I came up with that I assumed would be of no interest to anyone else was later published. That little something was “Jeny’s Surprisingly Stretchy Bindoff.”

I’ve since published some more techniques and designs, all of which you can check out here on Ravelry. It’s fun. :)
