Day 1 of the #yarnlovechallenge One day late but here I am. My name is Annekatrin, short Anne or I even listen to Anna. Originally I'm from Leipzig, Germany and moved to Calgary, Canada over 9 years ago. Knitting has been my medium to find like minded people when I was first new here. It worked. I learned how to knit in grade 5 in school. Growing up in East Germany it was part of a class in crafts in most schools. After that I did knit on and off for a few years. Started at a sweater at 16 and finished with 19. Went on a hiatus, picked up the needles again in 2002 and have been knitting ever since. During the day I work as an Project Accountant and SRED Analyst while going to school at night. If I'm not working, studying or knitting I love to dance (kizomba, bachata, Salsa & tango), cook and hike if I find my way to the mountains.
