Hi! My name is Michelle, and I am a (gasp!) knitting college student. Although I’m sure it will readily become apparent, I’m not quite sure I want the ENTIRE world to know exactly where I go to school. Just wait for me to slip up- I’m sure it will happen! At this mystery school I am a Junior and a History major, with a side of Education classes. As you will probably soon see, I’m currently in a bit of a lace phase, but I can always go for casting on a pair of socks, or even the ever-popular impulse sweater- most of which I try and make as cozy as possible.

Even though this whole college thing can make me a bit busy, I’ll try my best to update at least a couple of times a week- hopefully every other day, if possible. I’ll also try to make my posts about knitting, and I’m sure I’ll add in bits and pieces about college life. I might even write a few posts about the difficulty of mixing the two!

  1. Hey! I love reading your blog! I’m a college knitter, too, although my projects are not as advanced as yours. How long have you been knitting? Do you knit alone or is there a club/group on campus?

    • I’ve been knitting since I was a kid- so long ago that I don’t remember learning the basics for the first time! And don’t worry about being advanced; that will come with time. I think I learned how to do everything beyond knit and purl from online tutorials and patterns. I’m definitely more of a solitary knitter. I knit while watching TV or listening to podcasts. There isn’t a group that meets on campus here, unfortunately, but I am considering starting one. How about you?

  2. You should definitely start a group! There’s one in the process of forming on my campus, but I’m not free during the meeting times 😦
    I’ve been knitting small projects on and off for about 10 years but I’m super interested in knitting now that I’ve started making socks and buying nicer yarns. I’m more of a solitary knitter, too. I knit while watching tv or on the bus. It’s nice knowing that there are other college students out there who like to dedicate a little free time to knitting!

  3. I dedicate all my free time to knitting and hand craft. It’s the best. I’m a hand craft teacher, and where I got this, you would probabely name a college. I haven’t known that there are knitting colleges. Sounds like a lot of fun to me.

  4. It’s fun to see other college knitters who’ve gotten beyond the garter stitch scarf phase. I’m just finishing grad school currently, but was never without knitting during lectures in undergrad. I’ve been known to remember when I knit which sweater based on what class I did it in. Keep it up! :0)
