Well, I’ve been here about a month and I haven’t properly introduced myself.
I’m Emily (Metylda is my SCA name). I live in Tyler, TX with my 16yo son. I have another son who is almost 21. I also have 6 cats. Oddly enough, they only mess with my knitting when it is spread out flat (for blocking, drying, measuring and things like that). I’ve been knitting, crocheting, and tatting since I was 8. I’ve also been interested in bobbin lace, spinning and dying; but I haven’t had a chance to learn.
I am currently in school trying to finish my degree in Music Education. It suddenly hit me about 2 years ago that I had put my education on hold to raise my wonderful boys. Matt was already 19 and Dakota 15…I think I’ve got them pretty much raised. So when homework (or concerts or recitals) looms over my head, everything else takes a backseat. But when I can, I love to knit.
Most recently, I finished a scarf with the “woven cables in relief” on both sides (knitted as a tube), the Klein bottle/Pi hat, 3 pairs of socks, and a shawl with the TARDIS on it. If I ever get the shawl blocked, I can take a pic of it to post. Just before the start of the semester, I started on my most daring project–a replica of the season 12.5 Doctor Who scarf. I am nearly done with it and then the knitting bag gets put away until May.
