About the blogger

My name is Lesley and I live in New Brunswick, Canada. I work as a computer programmer by day but am an obsessive knitter when I’m not doing that. My husband and step son do a great job of trying to seem interested in my various yarny projects and tolerate having the evidence of my obsession exploded throughout the house. I decided to start GetYourKnitTogether.com without a terribly clear idea of what I wanted to accomplish with it, mostly I just started it for fun. As time goes on I think this blog is going to evolve and define itself in a more concrete way, but for now I’m enjoying myself tremendously just posting about my projects and other knitting related things.12038952_10156191798065603_136527845616613936_o

Please note that I have no affiliation with any designers, fiber artists, or companies of any sort. Any time I mention any products/yarns/patterns you can trust that it is my honest opinion (for better or worse).

You can always find me on Instagram. (username: obsessiveknit) This has been my most recent social networking site joining. I don’t know why it took me so long to get on the bandwagon, but I’m here now. Lots of pictures of my knitting as well as of non-knitting related things.


I am also an avid user of Ravelry. (username: lerichards) I visit Ravelry pretty much every day so it is a great way to get in touch with me. You can see all my knitting projects that I am working on and how they are going. I usually keep fairly detailed project notes celebrating the victories, but also whining like a big baby when things screw up or get frustrating. (Sonar Shawl, I’m looking at you.)
