Hello! My name is Stephanie and I am a wife, dog mom, bunny mom, guinea pig mom, a knitter, hiker, canoer, gardener and an outdoor lover. I rediscovered knitting about 3 years ago when I was going through a rough patch. I was searching for a new hobby and remembered my first knitting class in 7th grade. I went to the store bought needles way too big and yarn way too small. I had no idea what I was doing. I brought it home and made the most ridiculous looking scarf that my grandma still wears! I was hooked after that. Knitting is my happy place. It calms me down when I'm anxious and makes me happy when I'm sad. It teaches me that making mistakes are ok and fixing them is part of the learning process. My absolute favorite things to knit are hats! I recently began trying my hand at sweaters and have made a total of 5 so far. I have really enjoyed learning sweaters but hats are still my favorite. I always look for patterns where I can learn a new stitch, a new bind off/cast on, or a new increase/decrease. I am really looking forward to being a part of fiberly and connecting with other yarn crazy people out there!
