I started knitting shortly after starting college in Fall 2011. It was fate in my opinion. During first year orientation we had to do community service projects that were selected for us. I was chosen to do a project where we were to prepare 8" X 8" squares to be made into blankets for orphans with AIDS. When I arrived we were separated into groups of how we were going to produce the squares. I chose the group that was learning how to crochet. I enjoyed it so much that I joined the Knitting/Crochet club at school where I learned how to knit from one of the first year members. I fell in love and have been creating ever since!
