Question: What is both yarn-crazy and reinventing itself…again??

Answer: This blog!!!!  “Bossygirl” has been so patient, waiting all summer and fall for me to get my blogging act together.  All four of my past readers know well that I tend to go dark once school starts, and this fall was no exception.  The good news is that Phoenix Middle School is rounding the corner toward the middle of our third (!) year; the better news is that the Phoenix Knitters are off and knitting like crazy. 🙂  We meet every Monday afternoon in the library…currently, we’re working on an afghan to donate.  We also have had two sessions with Kim Johnson, a professional spinner, who is trying to teach us how to spin with a drop spindle.   Oy. (More on that later).

So…after talking about it for 2 years, I’ve finally gotten a blog up and running for my Global Cultures students (click here to visit).  However, it has quickly become obvious that I need a forum for our Phoenix Knitters as well. Enter “Bossygirl.”  I’ll find out tomorrow at school whether we can access WordPress from our district server (fingers crossed.)  If not, we’ll have to access it outside of the school day.

For Phoenix Knitters: what kind of  knitting information would you like to find, discuss, learn about through this blog?

For the other four readers (if you’re still out there):  Who taught you how to knit? How long have you been knitting?

Nice to be back.

  1. Yay for coming back to the blog! 🙂

    My Mom taught me to knit when I was around 12 years old I think. I’ve done it off and on since then. 🙂

    I just started knitting this past summer . . . . I taught myself, but have taken a few lessons at The Yarn Shop in Overland Park . . . . I am officially obsessed. I can’t get enough. Since July, I’ve completed (let me count….) 9 projects! (4 stocking hats, 2 hat/scarf sets, baby sweater/hat, baby poncho – so cute, another scarf). Now I have 4 projects underway!
