My name is Pennie, pennieb on Ravelry. I grew up in East Texas where it is rarely cold enough to wear anything knitted, but I loved the idea of making something with sticks and string, so I learned to knit when I was 10. My mother helped me some, although she got frustrated with my left-handedness, so I learned a lot from the McCall's Make-It Book (I think that was the title). The first thing I remember knitting was a hat.
I learned to crochet when I was in college and crocheted vests and ponchos were trendy. I would love to have some of those now.
Favorite movies: Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid, The Intern, Julie & Julia ... nothing too deep
Loving the slow cooker recipes because my favorite foods are ones that are easy to fix!
I want to learn so many things - how to do colorwork with yarn in each hand, how to knit lace from a chart, how to add beads ... the thing I love about knitting is I can be totally challenged or I can find something easy and soothing to calm my spirit. Which I definitely need.
My favorite weekend of the year is DFW Fiber Fest, early April this year.
