I am a relatively new knitter, about a year and have fallen in love with knitting. I keep a number of projects going at any one time including hats, baby hats, a baby blanket, scarves (one of mitered squares), wash clothes, just one sweater so far, and I hope to try socks sometime soon. I've been working exclusively in natural fibers so far and just joined a spinning guild though have to learn to spin. I want to learn to dye, have tried felting, and I would like to create my own patterns, so I've plenty of interests. Oh, and as regards the user name, I'm a gardener by profession so winter is when I get to do projects.
