Crafty Like Ice Is Cold

Knitting is my passion. (Well, obviously, one of my many passions, but definitely a passion.) It calms my nerves, keeps me from being fidgety and bored, and allows me a creative outlet. Plus, it's a very sensual (not sexual - SENSUAL) hobby - like many knitters, I gravitate towards soft, natural fibers rather than the creaky acrylic stuff (though I do use that too). It feels nice in my hands :)

I actually consider myself "bicraftual" (haha) - I can knit AND crochet. I actually learned how to crochet first, in 2006, and learned to knit shortly thereafter. I've stuck mostly to knitting because there are just more patterns available that appeal to me. I've completed over a hundred projects, small and large, since then.









Some of my proudest moments of crafting.


I'm a member of Ravelry, an online database/social networking site for fiber artists (knitters, crocheters, spinners, dyers, etc.) It's a FANTASTIC resource, and I'm on it just about all the time. I have separate friendships with people I've met solely through Ravelry, and have even met up in person with some of them, to do knitting-related things.
