I decided to start knitting my sophomore year of high school. I had a friend who was knitting a hat during lunch, I thought the whole process looked pretty interesting. Then she knit me a scarf for my birthday, which I wear all the time. A few months later I saw another one of my friends knitting, so I asked her about it. She told me she had bought "Stitch n' Bitch: The Knitters Handbook" and loved it. This lead to me going to the bookstore and buying it. My first attempts were horrible, but it was fun. Now I can't stop knitting!!!
