My knitting "history"
I learned to knit from my mother while in grade school. I knit happily through high school but lost interest while I was in college. After a few non-knitting years I stumbled on a nearby fiber arts shop (alas, no longer with us) that encouraged a design-it-yourself approach to knitting. I bought some yarn, Jackie Fee's book "The Sweater Workshop" and never looked back.
After designing for myself for years, I have decided to try to write up some of my patterns. Even with a technical writing background, writing up a knitting pattern is quite a challenge. My technical and typography background allowed me to create a knitting font for use in my patterns which is now available through this site.
