I started knitting in graduate school after watching a friend working furiously on a baby blanket for a nephew-to-be. With a four hour statistics class looming in front of me, creating something with some string and a couple of sticks was very appealing. So I bought a copy of Vogue Knitting, some bamboo needles, two balls of Filatura di Crosa Zara and I taught myself how to knit.
