Hello! My name is Kate McCullough.
I am a self taught knitter and housewife. I’m also a Facebook® junkie. A couple of years ago, I joined a group on Facebook called Outlander Pattern Central. The focus of the group was to recreate the costumes based on the Starz® original series and Diana Gabaldon’s Outlander series. Quite a few of the members expressed a desire to learn how to knit so they could create some of the designs, specifically shawls, shrugs, cowls and fingerless mitts that they were seeing in the show. Thus the birth of the spin off group, Knitting4Knewbies and the birth of this blog.
In teaching these women and a few men how to knit, I’ve put together some really awesome resources to share.
Helping me with this blog is my daughter Mel Howard.
Mel is also a knitter and crocheter. She has a Software Engineering degree from the University of Phoenix.
