Welcome

Hello All!

Welcome to my knitting blog. Been meaning to get one started for some time, but life makes things a bit difficult sometimes.

Let me start by telling a little about myself. I'm originally from South Jersey and have been transplanted to NYC for the past 6 1/2 years or so. I graduated from the Fashion Institute of Technology about 3 years ago and majored in knitwear. I am currently a sweater designer for dollhouse, a junior clothing line.

I started handknitting at the age of 8 and was taught by my grandmother. I lost interest quickly, but started to get my knit-on again about 4 years ago. I have recently been published in Debbie Stoller's Stitch and Bitch Nation (Lucky Clover Wrap) and with any luck (and time) I hope to submit more patterns for publishing elsewhere soon.

In fact, a knit-along for the lucky clover wrap is starting March 1st, hosted by LollyKnitting Around. I'm so excited! I just hope my yarn comes in on time!

HI Melissa! Glad to hear that you started a blog--we are all so excited about the knitalong :) Looking forward to seeing your yarn--sounds lovely! Of course, you don't have to start exactly on the 1st.

Great to have a professional on board with us :)
