heartExpat Minnesnowtan and recovered Yarnaholic working off a mega-yarnstash which began when I worked part time in a yarn shop over 30 years ago. Because I’m such a slow knitter, I now focus on small projects that have a chance of being finished in my lifetime. Consequently, the yarnstash to FO ratio is, shall we say, screwed.

My longest-running work-in-progress is a Rowan kit I picked up in England following a Rowan Knitting Workshop in 1994, Kaffe Fassett’s killem“Kilim Cushion Cover” which my knitbuddy nicknamed the “Kill’em Cushion Cover”. My hair was dark then.

Formerly “knitchat1” on the KnitList chats, since August 3, 2007 I’ve been part of Ravelry. (Username: JenniferT and embarrassingly enough I even have a “Designer” page there. Stop by and say “hi!”) Access is available only to registered users. Be forewarned-next to Facebook, Ravelry is a Serious.Time.Suck. (Serious!)

How did this blog get its name? Thank Knitty!
