Nik, this is a great idea. Thanks for starting it.

  1. How long have you been knitting?

[color=darkred]I’ve been knitting on and off for about 2 years now (mostly off for the last year).
[/color]
2) What inspirred you to learn?

[color=darkred]Hmmm. I think it was my boss at the time, who has been knitting for a long time and makes beautiful things. [/color]

  1. English or Contiental

[color=darkred]English. That’s how I learned, and I don’t see myself changing for the sake of change. English feels good and works for me. [/color]

  1. What was your first project?

[color=darkred]A very simple tassel hat from Knitting for Dummies. [/color]

  1. If #4 was scarf :wink: what was your first non-scarf project?

[color=darkred]N/A[/color]

[color=darkred]I am anxiously awaiting the Summer tank knit-a-long, which will be my first sweater AND my first item made just for ME. :cheering: [/color]

[color=darkred]Anything other than hats and scarves, at this point. Sweaters, I guess. Oh, any of the beautiful, free sweater patterns on Marnie’s web site. [/color]

  1. What are your views on Red Heart yarn?

[color=darkred]I have no problem with less expensive yarns. But, when I have tried to knit with plain acrylic recently, it seems too sticky for me (and I love to knit on metal needles, so they are not usually sticky). I think Red Heart is fine, depending on the project. I find it difficult to knit with and would avoid it for myself. I certainly don’t look down on folks who like to knit with it or can’t afford better yarn. [/color]

  1. What is your favorite pattern you have seen?

[color=darkred]That’s a hard question! I like most of what is in Rowan’s Spring/Summer '05 magazine. I like this sweater a lot: Marianne.[/color]

  1. What is your favorite free pattern (other than here of course)

[color=darkred]I love all of Marnie’s free patterns, like Evening Diamonds. They are way beyond my skill level, but one day…[/color]

Posted: Thu Mar 17, 2005 3:40 pm Post subject: Get to know your knitters


ok so I took the cheesy “get to know you, e-mail everyone on your address list” spam

  1. How long have you been knitting? 4 months-I walked into the new yarn shop and asked if someone could show me how to knit and became addicted right away, which is how I found Amy’s site!

  2. What inspirred you to learn? I have always wanted to learn to knit and saw that a new lys was opening and my main goal was to learn to knit a scarf…needless to say, I became addicted and can’t get enough yarn or enough knowledge!

  3. English or Contiental -Continental

  4. What was your first project? A scarf which I gave to my daughter-in-law.

  5. If #4 was scarf what was your first non-scarf project? A Fiber Trend totebag…the medium size and it seemed like it took me forever (3 weeks of working on it sporadically)

  6. What are you working on now? A handbag and a small bunny for my 17 month old grandson.

  7. What is something you really, really want to start? Another handbag or 10 and more scarves using various types of stitches for practice.

8 ) What is a project you aspire to? I’d like to knit a sweater…I think.

  1. What are your views on Red Heart yarn? Never used it.

  2. What is your favorite pattern you have seen? I don’t think that I have a favorite…I like collecting most of them in the event I have the urge to use one of them for a future project.

  3. What is your favorite free pattern (other than here of course) Booga Bag

  4. Were you voted “most likely to be _____” in highschool What was it? (Hey, life can’t all be about knitting!) No one can believe that I’m still long enough to be knitting…It has been a joy to learn and I love it when I see the finished product.
