Hi! My name is Jan. I joined Loops Club for the social and support of others. I have missed going to my weekly knitting group due to covid.
My biggest challenge now is to try new patterns with different stitches. Also making my first sweater.
I am excited to see what other people are working on. Learning new techniques. Learning to navigate loops site on the computer.
By the time I was 5 years old I was sewing clothing and could crochet by sight. Neither my Mom or Grandmother could read crocheting directions. I learned how to read those directions in my 20’s and taught them. Knitting my Mom and Grandmother taught me to knit and purl. 10 years ago I joined a group of ladies at a local yarn shop. At the shop I learned how to read directions and the world of knitting opened up. Of course utube was and is a blessing.
On my needles right now I have Look,Squirrel by Casapinka . Starting second repeat of yoke counting out loud as I go. looking forward to meeting new knitters.
