If you have been reading my blog, you may have heard me mention my fellow knitter, roommate, and younger sister Kara. For a visual, here is a picture of my Mom and sisters and I shopping in Korea (Kara is on the far right):
Isn’t my family cute? Kara and I learned knitting around the same time (well, I learned first and then taught her when she decided she wanted to copy me) and have since become roommates. We are both a tad on the OCD side which means that we fit in with all the crazy knitters out there in blogland. And you all are crazy…you know this right?
At the very least Kara and I are crazy. We have a room solely dedicated to our yarn and blocking board. We have matching project bags in the TV room downstairs. We both have to try really hard (and I mean hard) to not think about knitting (aka browse knitting blogs) all day at work. We prefer knitting on a Friday night to most other activities. We envy the girl who we saw knitting during church�??as we know we can never become her as we won’t let ourselves be THAT kind of crazy. We love and heart knitting. Both of us are equally obsessed…granted, I was obsessed first but she soon gained her own independent obsession.
When we discovered blogs we had so much fun learning terms together such as LYS and FO. Kara supported me in starting my blog but refused to join in as she didn’t want the pressure of posting. But I knew it wouldn’t last. She was bound to eventually follow my lead and that day has come.
Visit my talented girl:
Go see all her cool FO’s and WIP’s. Right now she is working on Gauntlet’s…yes, the same Gauntlets I made a few short month’s ago…I know, the girl can’t stop copying me. It is like I am her idol or something. Honestly though, I can’t think of any groupie I would rather have. I love my sister/roommate.
Serious note to even younger little sister Bri: Please don’t think this post means I love Kara more then you. Although, you refuse to learn to knit so you couldn’t blame me if I did. But I don’t.

I have no problems being a copy cat. Frankly, it just reflects my impeccable taste.
Oh my! You two, what can I say?!? It’s nice to have some one look up to you and have a companion/support in something you enjoy. Oh wait I ALWAYS look up to you two, I’m only 5’3″.
You two are adorable. I can’t believe you saw someone knitting in church, that’s too funny. LOL
Thanks for your lovely compliment on my gloves, Erin! I’m great you get to live and knit with your sis. And a room dedicated to yarn??? I want to move in!
I would find it very hard to live with one of my sisters. It’s wonderful you are so close and enjoy doing many of the same things. And YES, we are crazy, passionate for knitting!
Thanks for visiting my blog. Starsky is totally doable, just take your time with it. Do it! Do it! Lol. This story bought tears to my eyes, I think I want to link both of you! Is it ok?
I love it ~I really do Erin it is just too cool the way you knit. I am going to secretly long to be you and I guess Kara too.
It’s okay, you can just long to be me. 🙂
