A Knitter’s Introduction
Well hello there! I’m sure right now you’re wondering who this is posting on the Creative Knitting blog that isn’t Kara. Not to worry, all will be revealed shortly.
My name is Jaclyn, not to be confused with the talented Jackie Daugherty that I have the distinct pleasure to work with; I’m Creative Knitting’s new editorial assistant. Kara asked me if I would like to join her blog team and I jumped at the chance so here I am! I’ll be posting on ‘All Things Knitterly’, but I wanted to start out with an introduction.
I recently joined the team here at Creative Knitting, though I have been a fan of the publication for years. I’m now one of those lucky people who can honestly say they love their job and I am thankful every day for that.
I started out crocheting, actually. My mom taught me when I was young, probably around 7-8, but it wasn’t until I was in college that I started to take interest in the two sticks. I had stumbled upon a discarded book at the library, a beginners knitting guide. I looked through it but did not have any revelations. Later that year, I kept thinking about how interesting the patterns and stitches were when I would look online. Deciding that I had had enough looking, I got online and found some videos and taught myself; just me, some yarn, two sticks and a computer screen. I won’t tell you it was easy (you don’t want to see some of my first scarves!), but I kept at it. Fast forward a couple of years and here I am, a much more proficient knitter, though still a student in my craft.
Right now I have about 6 projects going, varying from socks to pillows and I’m always on the hunt to learn that new stitch or technique.
Join me both in my adventures and tribulations in knitting, I promise to make it entertaining!
P.S- Stay tuned for some exciting news in the next coming days!
