I am a recent transplant to the suburbs (albeit a cool one) from Chicago who started knitting in the autumn of 2003 because, as a poor graduate student, I thought it would be inexpensive to make gifts for people. Oh, how wrong I was! I live with my boyfriend, who is very tolerant of my knitting habit. We are trying to be more healthy, more environmentally friendly, and more creative. Although we have been making positive lifestyle changes for a couple of years, our recent move has motivated us to start fresh.
This blog started out as knitting-only blog, as I had another blog where I chronicled other aspects of my life. In the end I decided one blog was the way to go, and this blog is now expanding to include other aspects of my life. My life inspires my knitting, and my knitting has a huge impact on my life, so I no longer feel like knitting is a hobby separate from my other interests.
