Hi everyone! I’m so excited to be here. My name is Jen (JenWknits) and I really love to knit! My grandmother first tried to teach me to knit when I was 9 but I had other things on my mind. Though, come to think of it, it was the 1980s, and I could have knit some fine legwarmers!
A friend and I tried to learn to knit again during a summer break from college and we proudly mastered the basic knit and purl stitches, but it wasn’t until that period between law school and motherhood that I really began to practice and to love the craft.
For the past 10 years, I have been knitting afghans, socks, sweaters, scarves, hats and more. Now, I look forward to the end of the day when my freelance writing work is complete, my girls are safely tugged in bed, and I can pick up my needles and work on my latest project while I talk to my husband and dog (yes, I talk to the dog…you should know that now) or watch some of my favorite shows on TV.
I can’t wait to share my latest projects with you!
