My name is Tracie and I am also from the Twin Cities!
I started knititting about a year ago when I forced my mom to go to a class at our LYS. Needless to say, I now have the biggest stash.
I have this weekend off and knowing how cold it is to get here, all I can think of is staying home and knitting all weekend. I think my husband will not be happy about that.
Today I am wearing (for the first time) a scarf I just made and everyone is commenting on it. They are shocked when I say that I made it! FUN!
Currently, I am working on my first sock ever, a fair isle holiday stocking (maybe I'll finish by next Christmas) and a prayer shawl.
