My grandmother taught me how to knit when I was a little girl. I sporadically knit scarves until 2006 when a colleague, who was an avid knitter, encouraged me to try something more challenging. That's when the knitting bug bit me HARD. I've literally had a project on my needles at all times since then. I commute from Brampton to Toronto during the week and can often be found knitting away in my seat. I knit all kinds of things - socks, sweaters, hats, blankets, tea cozies. . . I am absolutely passionate about knitting and have taught a number of colleagues to knit on our lunch hours! You can check out my projects on Ravelry - my handle is sassywomyn.
