Hi! My name is Mary. Let's see... I'm 24, an accounting student and freelance graphic designer, a South Carolina native, and have too many critters for my own good.

I taught myself to knit back in November after moving back to my small hometown from the much more active Orlando, FL. Fell in love with it and been at it ever since.
I'm a total ADD knitter. The thought of one WIP at a time sends me into convulsions.
I'm making advances... recently began delving into the world of simple lace.

Made a feeble attempt to teach myself to crochet a couple months ago when The Happy Hooker came out. Learned that crochet makes me want to poke my seld in the eye with the hook just to get out of it. Lol. But I HAVE to have that dang cowboy hat! (I'll be forever in your debt if you can find me a good patter for KNITTING a cowboy hat. Seriously.)

Um, so yeah, that's me.
Hi again.

Hi, I'm Kate. I just recently picked up knitting within the last 3 months or so but I am enjoying it so far! I do also crochet and cross stitch. (Shamelessly showing off my masterpiece) In my spare time I also have a set of twin boys who just turned a year old last week. Here's a cake-in-the-face picture for you!

I am looking forward to many knitty conversations!
