Decoded Knitter’s Geek Code
KNITTING GEEK TYPE CODE [KER++]
Knitter of English style, Right handed, I spend a great deal of my spare time knitting
KNITTING EXPERIENCE [Exp+]
I have been knitting for a few years now, and consider myself an intermediate knitter, at least.
KNITTING STITCHES PER MINUTE [SPM+(++)]
My tendencies on this issue range from: “I mostly get gifts done in time.”, to: “I truck along on bigger projects, finishing at least a couple a year, with lots of smaller items in between.”
KNITTING GEEK NEEDLES CODE [Steel+Bam+AddiT++]
I love my Steel Needles, and have several pairs.
I knit with bamboo from time to time.
I'm trying to collect every size and length of these Addi Turbo needles.
KNITTING GEEK YARN CODE [CotWool+++Lux+]
I knit with cotton from time to time.
I love knitting with wool and prefer it to any other fibre.
I enjoy knitting with Luxury Yarns and do it whenever I can.
KNITTING GEEK YARN STASH [Stash++]
I troll my local yarn stores pretty regularly, and check out new ones when I travel, so naturally I pick up some great things when an opportunity presents itself, and work out what to do with it later. I get comments from my loved ones about how, just maybe, I have more yarn than I need. But I love the sense of possibility I get from going through my stash and letting inspiration happen.
KNITTING GEEK SCALE [Scale+]
Thanks to my day job, I mostly concentrate on small projects, but I manage to fit in a sweater a year.
KNITTING GEEK FINISHING CODE [Fin-@]
I hate this part, but you have to do it. I always try to keep it simple, and I weave in ends or sew seams as I go so it isn't so bad at the end. But that varies…
