I am a knitter and crocheter living in Brooklyn, NY, with two cats, neither of which shows the slightest interest in yarn.  I’m also a freelance writer, and a beaded jewelry maker.

    I’m a reluctant knitter, and have crocheted my fair share as well. My problem with knitting is I never like anything I make! I love the process, the materials, etc., but no matter HOW HARD I TRY (and I have), everything turns out lopsided, or with the wrong proportions, or too small, or too large, etc. So I end up throwing it away or stacking it in a pile of discards never to be looked at again. So I’ve taken up quilting instead. Much happier with that. I’m not giving up on knitting entirely tho, because hope is never lost.

      No, Monica, hope is never lost. Took me a while to figure out that whatever size needles the pattern calls for I should go two sizes smaller if I want to hit gauge. Also took a while to learn that if I used the needles called for and the size “L” on a pattern I could — 99% of the time — create a sort of “extra large”. And I still envy knitters whose stitches are perfectly even.
