About

Picture the scene from the Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy movie when the improbability drive is engaged and they turn into knit figures. That’s essentially the inside of my brain. I am a knitter, and a massive yarn enthusiast. My current living situation is pretty counterproductive to my craft because I live in a desert and the closest yarn shop is 50 miles away, though that hasn’t stopped me from collecting a lot of yarn. I’m not ashamed to admit I’ve had to restrict myself from purchasing yarn for a few years so I could keep paying rent. I mean, what’s the point of having all that yarn if I have nowhere to stash it?

I get excited over yarn shops, pattern charts, natural fibers, hand-dyed colors, well-written patterns, and project bags. I’m never without my knitting, but I always have too many projects to complete. My husband and my sons are very sweet to help with my knitting, from being a makeshift swift to bringing my project bag to me whenever they see it laying out. Most importantly, they don’t complain (or I don’t hear complaints) about those times when I tune out the world and concentrate on my knitting.
