In the beginning...


Since this is my first post, I thought I'd start by putting up some of my first projects on the Knifty Knitter looms.

I found knitting my freshman year in college at Oberlin: a girl on my floor taught me and soon I was like the other Obies and knitting in my poetry and psychology classes instead of taking notes. I only made scarves for the longest time.

Then I bought a really useful book and learned how to purl and other things, but got frustrated with the needles.

Sometime in January of 2007 I wandered in to my local Michaels and saw a demonstration using the KK looms. I took a class on how to make slippers, taught myself how to make a magic scarf, and soon took other classes.

These chicks were made for my cousins' Easter baskets and I personalized them by adding purses, balls, or glasses. They loved them. Aren't they adorable?
