I put a lot of research into a project before I cast on. This usually leaves me frantically knitting a blanket or sweater just a day or two before the gift is due. Thankfully, I have a husband who understands the time commitment a serious hobby can take. (He has an interesting hobby of his own: home brewing.)
Like most devoted knitters, I rarely leave the house without a knitting project. As a result, I have taught several curious neighbors and friends from church how to loop yarn around a needle. But since my daily interaction with fiber enthusiasts is still rather limited, I will share my various knitting pursuits (both the good and the bad) among like-minded knitters here at Knit Me for a Loop.
