Hello! My name is Lindsay and I knit. Most people find this out about me fairly quickly because I always have yarn with me... If I don't, my hands don't know what to do! My favorite things to knit are hats. They are quick and you don't have to make two of them.

Recently, I was afraid to try anything but hats, but I have now made myself a vest. I'm not sure it will count as a vest, because I used such big needles and chunky yarn.... it only took four days. I have decided to make another to prove myself worthy to call myself a knitter. I've been knitting for about four years now and I only have hats to show for it! Well, plus one vest. But I do have a pretty cool collection of hats.

I also have a few other hobbies other than knitting. I crochet as well. I don't do it as often as I used to though. My love for knitting has grown much more than my love of crocheting. I've crocheted a few blankets, I donated one to my pregnant aunt, one to cover the old moth-eaten seats in my dad's car, and one to my bed.

I absolutely LOVE dogs. I will always have one (or more) to keep me company. I really want a Great Dane some day. Another one of my hobbies is grooming dogs. I enjoy doing it.

My other favorite hobby is looking up knitting patterns that intrigue me. My favorite one so far is the "Mini-Argyle Beret" by Angela Sixian Wu. I've made two--they are so much fun to make!

I will be sure to keep you updated with all the news going on in my life and my thoughts about knitting. Hope you have fun!
