Where did you grow up?/ where do you live now?
I grew up in Buffalo, NY and currently live in Boston, MA (Jamaica Plain) with my fiancé Josh.
When did you learn to knit?
I taught myself how to knit via Youtube during the awkward year after college when I wasn't sure what chapter was next. It was a great distraction!
Who taught you how to knit?
Primarily self taught via Youtube, but I also learned a few beginner skills as a Girl Scout when I was younger.
What does knitting mean to you?
Challenge, relax and patience are the first three words that came to mind. But also confidence! It's so cool to learn a new skill that's challenging at first, but then with practice and patience (with yourself!!) is quickly mastered. Knitting my first sweater brought me so much self-confidence and joy!
What is your favorite thing about teaching people to knit?
I love teaching people a skill that can help bring them confidence.
