Hi, I'm Carol, CarolLynn on ravelry. I don't remember the first thing I knit, or even learning to knit, but I must have learned from my mother. I was a sporadic knitter up through my 40s, and I can only remember a couple of projects I successfully completed. When my son was in third grade (he's 23 now) a knitter mom in his class invited me to join her knitting group. Discovering a knitting community, plus ravelry, has made me a Knitter with a capital K.
My greatest, or at least most fun, knitting adventure was knitting part of the non-itchy sweater for Mo Rocco on Wait Wait, Don't Tell Me. Because I'm in Chicago (or at least a close suburb), I got to go to the taping of the show and present him with the finished piece. It turned out so beautifully and I was very proud to be part of the effort.
Last year I banged out a Stopover and it was great fun. I almost jumped in this year, too, but I just have too much yarn and too many other projects ... you guys understand.
