About Me

My name is Louise Reilly. I currently live in Madison, Wisconsin, having recently relocated from Scotland, United Kingdom. I have always been a creative type, having a keen interest for art during my high school years. During the more recent years however, my career has taken centre stage. I currently work as a scientific researcher at the university here.

As a young girl, I was taught to knit by my mother and maternal grandmother. Being so young and a fidget, I wasn’t interested in sitting still for hours and hours. Fast forward to 6 years ago from now, upon the commencement of my soon-to-be very demanding doctoral work, I sought a new hobby. One where I could quiet my mind from the chaos of the day and relax my body before sleep. Knitting satisfied everything I was looking for. Through the magic of technology, I taught myself the basics, coupled with some indispensable lessons from my then boyfriend’s grandmother.

Upon completion of my doctorate, I have been more and more philosophical about life. Knitting forms a large part of my life, and I have become more conscious about the yarn I buy and the items I choose to make. I’m always interested in why others choose the designs they do, or the yarn they use to craft those designs. I love hearing from others on their experiences with knitting and why they make the choices they do.

I principally decided to start this blog as a way to keep in touch with friends at home and here in the US, as well as a way of keeping track of my growth as a knitter.

You can keep up to date with all my goings on on Twitter, Ravelry and Instagram.
