I’m 19 years old. My mom taught me to knit when I was 4 or so, but I didn’t get truly obsessed ‘til I was about 11. I knit ALL the time - it keeps me sane. I’m also starting to design my own patterns, all of which are free and linked through Ravelry as well as my blog.

I also spin on a wonderful Lendrum DT named Lenny. I’ve recently decided to become a more purposeful spinner - i.e. say ‘I’m going to spin that as sock weight, not just however it comes out…’ (although this is somewhat on hold in the face of college apps due to being less than portable)

I lovelovelove Ravelry - it’s done wonderful things for me (I won’t lie - it’s wasted a goodly amount of my time, too), such as induce me to start a blog and (attempt to) take better pictures (or pictures at all for that matter) of my FO’s, and also to actually finish things at all! It’s so motivating, and KUDOS to Jess and Casey for creating such a phenomenal site!
