My name is Misty, and I'm a natural redhead. I love to knit, but I'm just starting to learn beyond the basics. Two books that I have found helpful are knitspeak by Andrea Berman, and Field Guide To Knitting by Jackie Pawlowski. I'm a visual/manual learner--I learn best by watching it done and doing it myself as someone walks me through it--but these books are a big help!
I have been married for a little over five years, and I have two little girls. I clean our church part time, but I'm mostly a stay at home mom. I'm grateful to be able to stay home with my girls. :)
I love to read. I'm not a big t.v. person, but I'm into shows like Heroes, Smallville, Bones, Monk, Christy, and Dr. Quinn Medicine Woman. I like a variety of movies and music.
I am a Christian, and I believe that the best way to show Christ to others is to love them.
I'm interested in meeting other knitters, but I'm not interested in a lot of drama. :) A lot of online communities tend to attract people who only want a place to moan about how awful their lives are. That's not me. :) I like making friends, and I believe in being there for your friends, but I don't believe the internet is the place to broadcast your life and your troubles. That said, I also believe there are a lot of really nice people out there, as well. :)
Feel free to say hi. :)
