Allow Me to Introduce Myself...

...and thanks for the Contributor invite. I'm Katie (aka Miss Me), working parent of two sons. I currently work as a civil servant, but am still trying to figure out what I want to be when I grow up. I knit, sew, cross stitch, occassionally make jewellery, and will try just about any craft once. I started knitting as a teenager. I babysat a lot and needed something to do after the kids were in bed and my homework was done. Considering that I babysat the kids next door, I couldn't pursue the stereotypical babysitter activities - my mom would have killed me!

I love "Law & Order" and always have, much to my husband's dismay. It's a bit of a joke, but not really, that my television watching motto is "All crime, all the time". Aside from L&O, I'm a big fan of "Criminal Intent" and I have "Numb3rs"on in the background... My own personal theory is that all of us knitters are truly geeks at heart (sorry everyone, but I do think that it is true!) who absolutely love both numbers and repeating patterns.

What's on my needles these days? Uhm - everything... Not literally, but close. A couple of pairs of socks, a few sweaters, the Lizard Ridge afghan (8 blocks to go!) and a variety of other UFOs that may eventually become FOs.

Welcome Miss Me/Katie (great moniker!). Not sure how you have the time to work on so many projects with 2 kids and a job!

I don't disagree with the knitter/geek connection - but then I'm proud to be a geek if that's the case. There is also a strong correllation for me between being interested in knitting and working in the legal profession (picky, repetitive).

I just started knitting socks today for the first time! Will likely post the pair once it is finished.
