Knitting Experience Questionnaire

Thank you all so much for the good vibes. It’s a little scary, and I’m very grateful to have the support.

Since starting law school I’ve been knitting more than when I was pulling 15 hour days at work, but less than when I was pulling 8 hour days. I’ve made some progress on the Serrano sleeves, but I’m sure you’re not interested in row-by-row updates. Instead, I decided to do the questionnaire that I saw on Robin’s blog.

  1. Those are some good skills you got there! This was fun to read through and see all the things that I still want to try – it’s neverending 🙂

  2. I didn’t even know what a few of these were! Some knitter I was, who’d believe I’d been knitting for years and years?

    I do believe graffiti knitting is what the Knitta Crew do. Coats on trees and the like :).
