How I got started?
I started crocheting and knitting in high school. Thanks to my dear friend, Kate, who introduced this amazing hobby to me. Then I went to college and kind of forgot about this whole thing. Until, I was pregnant with my son. I wanted to make a baby aviator hat. Then I wanted to make a bee hat and diaper cover, a lion hat, baby boots…my interests in knitting and crochet started all over again and it hasn’t stopped. I love learning new techniques, trying different kinds of yarn, sharing my failed and success projects. I hope I get to share some of my own designs in the near future.
Aside from knitting…
I have a full time job. I have a two-year old son. As you can imagine, my full time job takes up most of my day time. My son takes up most of my night time. So, I like to kill as many birds with one stone (I really don’t like that expression. Also don’t like many ways to skin a cat. These are terrible sayings.) I incorporate my work out with commuting. I ride my bike to work when weather permitting, which means 300 days in Colorado. Part of my biking commute involves riding the bus. I love listening to audio books when biking and on bus. I need to catch up on so many “readings”. And of course, I knit on the bus while listening to audio books. It’s really the best combination!
I also like climbing. Now I mostly climb at gyms (MOVEMENT is a great gym! And I get corporate discount!) I mostly top rope. I would really like to work on my lead skills so I can lead some 5.11s in the future.
Lastly, I really liked food and to talk about food. But, I really hate the word “foodie”. Why do we have to label everything???
