Knit Like a Boss: The End

My heart is a little heavy as I write this, but I have decided it’s time to end my Knit Like a Boss series. I feel like it’s the right decision, that the column has reached a conclusion, and that it’s time for me to focus on some of the other things in my life.

[dropcap4 bgColor=”#3BA6CB”]I[/dropcap4]t’s been fun, it really has. I love passing on my skills (skillz?) and I was happy to see a handful of Persephoneers who seem to share my passion. I also notice that at least a few people commented on my very first knitting post to tell me they had picked up needles for the first time, or tried again after a failed attempt, and that made me unbelievably excited.

I hope those of you who either started knitting through these columns (or were already knitting and read anyway) keep on making things. Beautiful things, silly things, naughty or nerdy things, things that you keep or give away. Things that you put on your cat until he hisses and claws you in a fit of embarrassment. Whatever.

Please add me as a friend on [fancy_link link=”″ textColor=”#7EB936″ target=”blank”]Ravelry[/fancy_link], or join our [fancy_link link=”” textColor=”#4f134d” target=”blank”]knitting group[/fancy_link]
right here on Persephone. And if you have any questions, you can always send me a message. I’ve spent the past couple of months convincing you I know what I’m talking about, so I can probably figure out any issue that might arise. Ravelry is also the best place to find patterns, and is a good place for instructions and videos.

All the best, Persephoknitters.

I’m always the “lurker” in the background, never saying anything.  So I logged on to say Thanks for this series.  Me, my puppy, my cats and my soon-to-be-born grand niece/nephew all are reaping the benefits of knitting.  Thanks to you, I’ve got a little more adventurous.  Thanks again for the realistic and happy eye directed toward knitting.
