first

after much thoughtful consideration, i've decided to share my knitting passion with the world.

i picked up the needles for the first time in 1996, the gap year of my life, waiting to go to graduate school. bored with nothing to do, my mother had offered to teach me how to knit. i made my first sweater that year, with pure merino wool.

i did not like that sweater. i took no pictures, i showed it to nobody and i gave the sweater away without mentioning it was my creation. after the experience, i also packed away my knitting stuff and forgot i ever learned how to knit.

many years later, i rediscovered that this old craft possesses an undeniable charm and i am falling into the wonderful world of knitting. only this time, i am giving it my genuine love.
