Thank you for visiting my blog, LollyKnitting Around!
My “real” name is Lauren Weinhold, and I live in Maryland with my husband, Kris, and our pets, Jen, Bella (canines) and Rusty and Quincy (felines).
This blog was born from my passion for writing, crafts and photography. I learned to knit in November 2003, and discovered the vibrant community of crafters online soon afterward. I jumped into the blogosphere in 2003 on Livejournal, where I primarily reviewed books I was reading. As my love for knitting increased, I decided to start this blog in July 2004. Although my blog’s title relates to my favorite craft, which I write about often, I also write extensively about my travels near and far, the books I am reading, my garden and cooking, and my nature adventures. It’s great to see you here!
