that the BSKG has grown so that many of us don't know each other. In an effort to learn more about our members, did ewe know will appear in the newsletter and on the blog. Here's our V.P., Kate Pultz:
tell us about your first project...what & when
Besides the yards and yards of i-cord spewed forth from a knitting nancy one summer when I was young, my first knitting project was a pattern called Nancy's Hat in 1999. But truly I have just begun knitting consistently in the past couple of years.
what was your most difficult project?
Probably the first charted pattern I knit which was actually enjoyable once I got the hang of reading the charts. Just one of those projects that I really should have knit while alone since I get too chatty and distracted easily.
what was/is your favorite project?
The Peruvian Hat that I learned to knit at Ewe-nique Knits. Worked inside out in purl stitches only, using the around-the-neck yarn carry and thumb flicking to wrap...a fun technique to learn.
salty or sweet?
Sweet! I was raised on sugar 'n' butter sandwiches.
tell us something interesting about yourself.
Although not terribly athletic, I bicycled across the country--3,300 miles--on a tandem in 7 weeks in the summer of 2001. It was an experience of a lifetime, and really makes me look forward to seeing more of small town USA.
aside from knitting, what are you passionate about?
Macintosh computers (user since 1990), creativity (graphic designer who admires design—graphic, architectural, industrial--and the arts in general) and kayaking (small scale--really just paddling in circles around a little lake).
