Yarny Goodness!

Another super exciting fun knitblog

  • November Knit Goals

    I'm prone to being a scatterbrain, so I try to make a short list of things to accomplish each month (lest I have 27 different non matching socks).

    Same as last month: Sleep more. Study more. Knit more. Sleep more.

About

I’m a somewhat compulsive knitter, part time grad student (statistics) and full time research geek.

I first learned to knit from my grandma, around 1986. I picked it up again when I finished college and needed something to do with my hands (back in 2004).

As for the “What have you done?” Meme…

Bold = have already tried this
Italicized = Plan to try this
Strike = Have no desire to try this
Plain = Indifferent
