This list makes me look more impressive than I am....


There is no symbol for "done well". I am still learning to do a gauge and to change according to the outcome. :) Hopefully, I will get as flawless as all of you are with every project. Nowadays, it is a case-by-case basis.

I have been knitting since 1998, when I learned to knit to pass the time on my 2 hour ferry commute days to Seattle. I had wanted to learn since 1988, when I was an exchange student in Australia and they taught knitting in their home economics course (should have taken that instead of drama!!). I knit now in those hazy moments before sleep in bed at night, or in the car. There is never enough time!!
