O hey, everyone! My name is Jenny and I’m a brand new,
pleased-as-punch addition to the Knit Picks staff. As time goes on, I hope to
share all my beautiful, botched or just plain shrug-inducing projects with you!
It’ll be fun, I promise.
First and foremost, I don’t knit. And frankly, how are you
all doing it? Was I merely born with the dexterity of child wearing thick
mittens? The needles! The way you must hold TWO of them!
On the other hand:
My mother taught me to crochet when I was little; I remember
being amazed at how she stitched while staring straight ahead, as though
actually looking at project was supremely superfluous. As for me, I started
with hankie-like scraps, which gave way to potholders, scarves and, eventually,
blankets. However, the single unifying factor in all of my earliest projects
was the almighty Granny Square, so color me nostalgic when I found this in a
stack of new KP books!
For my first endeavor, I’m torn between the Granny Square
lampshade cover (because the Glamour Level is unspeakably high) and the Granny
Square garland (because my bare cubicle is sad). What do you think I should do?
Or should I just give up on crocheting all together, simply because these knitting needles are way too boss? Life choices, everyone! Life choices.
