Hello. My name is Lynne and my vocation is nursing. I learned to knit when I was in junior high school ( that’s what it was called at the time). I was probably 13 years old. One of my first knitting projects was a vest with a cable down the front. It was maroon with a gray contrast neckline and sleeve bands. I can picture it very clearly. I think my sister took it. She says she doesn’t remember. I am not sure what happened to that vest, but I hope it is somewhere out there. That was my childhood knitting experience.
In the recent past, I have had a watershed moment in my life and fell [back]into knitting in a big way. I cannot seem to not be knitting. I enjoy reading knitting books, knitting magazines, and knitting patterns. I read the entire pattern before I begin knitting. I must not like surprises, but mostly, my knitting time is late at night and I like to have everything I need for a project before I begin.
When I knit, it’s a good day! I hope you enjoy reading about life and knitting, too.
