Hi! You've stumbled upon Cindy Park's website. It's mostly about knitting (hence the clever name), but you'll also find some other things here... mostly galleries of my pets and the occassional cycling race (my husband's hobby). Be sure to check out our blogs:
I started knitting after taking an adult ed class not too long after graduating college. While I grew up sewing and doing other needlecraft (and was a Fine Arts major in college), I had never had the opportunity to learn to knit.
I became addicted. I learned mostly thru trial and error. Took more classes... and became a yarn collector. It's now the most dominate part of my life. It's rare that I don't spend at least some (if not most) of each day on knitting.
I've learned that I prefer to knit sweaters... specifically cardigan (and I'm beta testing to find the threshold on knitting/owning green cardgians). While I've been known to knit things other than green cardigans, I'll never known as a "sock knitter"
I'm a big believer in doing what works for you. I am no Knitting Knazi!
I'm also not a fan of swatching. I do do it... but not in the traditional sense. I find that it's faster to just jump into a project then rip if it's not working. I rip a lot of projects.
