Nancy Rieck Bio:
I learned to knit around the age of 12 at “The Triplets” house. From then on, I continued to teach myself more and more about knitting every time I picked up the needles I lifted from my mother’s unused stash. Through the years, in between knitting projects, I would paint, needlepoint, quilt, crochet, sew, and a multitude of other arts and crafts that would spark my interest.
I made a big jump in my knitting technique when my family moved to a new state and my sister encouraged me to join a knitting group to meet people. At my new knitting circle I heard what others were learning, I saw and learned from their knitting projects. A whole new wealth of knowledge was added to my own craft.
I quickly moved on to create new patterns, striving for better technique and at the same time pushing to be creative. It is a process that brings me joy! It is a craft that has countless techniques, creative and learning possibilities.
