Welcome to my world

Welcome to A Skein of Yarn (or Ten).

A bit about me:

I’m about to turn 59, and I’ve been knitting and crocheting since I was five years old.  (Mom taught me to knit; Dad taught me to crochet).  I’m also a freelance writer.

I have one of the earliest to-up sock patterns on the web, Deb’s Almost-Easy Toe-Up Socks; the current version (with a pic) is on Ravelry and at Naughty Knitterz.  The original was on Socknitters, posted in 1999.

Over the last year, I’ve been participating in the 2011 Year of Stash Socks challenge.  It’s been a lot of fun, and I have been working my way through my stash at a very pleasing rate.  Been posting pics of my projects for the challenge there and on my Ravelry page.

Doing the challenge has reminded me that one of the things on my bucket list is to become a knitting designer.  Another is to write about knitting and crocheting.  Hence, this blog.

So, welcome once again, pull up a chair, grab a mug or glass of your favorite beverage, and your yarn and needles, and join me for the ride.

      Sigh – what was that line about errors being in invisible ink when you are proofing the article and in 2-foot neon letters once it’s published?

      Thanks, Judy, I corrected it.
