Sometimes connecting with others isn’t just fun, it is necessary. Sharing ideas and inspiration as well as challenges (and gaffes) make life all the better…
I am Melissa or MSkiKnits on Ravelry, Twitter and Instagram. You can find the podcast on iTunes and Bliptv or just look to the “Episode Updates” on the blog and they are featured there.
I love knitting. LOVE it. Not just the act of knitting, but the preparation, playing with all the fiber options, changing and re-changing pattern choices. Even better is the connection with others through knitting, both knitters and non-knitters alike. This is where I do just that!
And now I have begun to spin! Oh how lucky I am to have patient, intelligent friends who shared this gift with me!
…So you are wondering: Is this knitting blog any different from all the others?
The idea sure isn’t. I do have a slightly different angle as a knitter though, since I knit with one hand. I guess I am a single handed blogger too! A story that involves a coconut, my left arm and a long year away from knitting finds a happy ending, or rather a happy new start here with this blog. My most sincere desire is to encourage everyone to be a better knitter. If I can do it with one single hand, everyone can do it.
