cropped-5394303940_907613be741.jpgMy mom taught me how to knit when I was just a kid, and I have pretty much consistently had at least one project on my needles for the last 18 years.  I mostly knit garments (I love making sweaters and shawls), but I have done some other weird projects, too (I knit an anatomically correct worm model when I worked in a biology lab for a couple years).  I enjoy designing my own patterns, and dying and spinning my own yarn, because I am a little bit of a control freak.

When I’m not knitting around Seattle, I kick ass and take names for the Tilted Thunder Rail Birds, the Pacific Northwest’s only banked track roller derby league.  I also enjoy typical boring things like watching TV, reading books, and cooking.

You can follow me on Ravelry as onemilljellybeans, and on twitter as @on_the_needles

If you have questions, comments, find mistakes in my patterns or if you just want to say “Hi!” feel free to contact me at knittingontheneedles@gmail.com

I hope to hear from you soon!
