I am an editor based out of Central Texas. In my free time, I knit up a storm. It’s both my passion and my meditation. I’m not very good at it yet, but I aspire to be someday. In the meantime, I’ve decided to start this blog as a way to chronicle my growth as a knitter.
Although my grandmother tried to teach me when I was a kid, I didn’t really take to knitting until 2011. I decided my husband needed a Christmas stocking. I had never done colorwork or knit in the round, but I tried it anyway. After that first stocking, I was hooked. I haven’t stopped knitting since.
A month later, I started this blog so I could keep track of my progress as a knitter and maybe learn something from other knitters around the world. I invite open communication about the fiber world. If I’m doing a technique wrong, please (please) tell me. If you have tips that make certain techniques easier, post away!
If you have questions for me, feel free to send them my way. I can be reached at fortheknitofit(at)gmail(dot)com.
