September Reader Who Knits: Kathleen Stamer

It's time to meet this month's Reader Who Knits! DestiKNITters, say hello to Kathleen Stamer.

Kathleen, whats on your needles right now? 
A blanket from 60 Quick Baby Blankets called Pumpkin Patch, knit in stripes of autumnal orange. It is a perfect gender neutral color for the grandchild coming next March.

What feels like your favorite/greatest knitting accomplishment? 
The sweater I knit for my baby sister when I was sixteen and taking a knitting class in high school. It was my first sweater and I was really proud of it!

What feels like the worst knitting mistake/foible/wrong choice youve ever made? 
The vest I made with chunky yarn. I found out through that project that I didnt like chunky yarn for clothing items.

Straight or circular needles? 

Metal or wood needles? 

White chocolate, milk chocolate, or dark chocolate? 
Milk chocolate

Coffee or tea? 

Whats your favorite Allie novel? 

What are you reading now? 
His Montana Homecoming by Jenna Mindel
