I've been kntting since I was in my early 20's. Mostly I'm a solitary knitter but every now and then I attend classes and retreats to learn new things and meet new people. The idea of an online knit along is fascinating. I guess I'd be classified as an intermediate knitter but I've done some advanced projects too. I don't let the knitting level scare me off, if I like it I try it. There have been more than a few that ended in OMG and lots of ripping but mostly I get through. I hate UFO's and allow myself only three ongoing projects at a time. If I want to start a new one, I have to finish one. So far that self imposed rule has worked well for me. Doesn't stop me from buying more yarn but it makes it all the more tantalizing to have it waiting for me. I hope to enjoy being part of the KAL to learn new ideas and meet new people who enjoy knitting as much as I do.
