Green Knitting for Everyone

Knitting is an activity that already has low impact on the environment. After all, we just need some pointy sticks and some sort of string/thread/yarn to practice our craft. Our choice of new yarn, however, can help support small farms and green agricultur…

How did you find Squidoo? I found Squidoo while doing research online about how to begin my journey as an online writer. After signing up I was a little intimidated but after joining the RocketSquids and navigating around the site a little more, I was totally hooked. The community, mentors, and greeters are wonderful, they help me make my writing the best it can be and thats what I want. I like that I can showcase my photography skills as well as my writing and that Squidoo is a giant supporter of uniqueness.

Of the lenses you’ve made so far, which is your favorite and why? I haven’t written that many lenses yet, but my favorite out of the ones I have is, Learning Kids Photography. This lens represents me as an amatuer photographer and allows others to get to know me a little better. It’s shows my passion for photography as well as the love I feel for children.

What one tip would you give to a new lensmaster starting out? One tip I would give to a new lensmaster is, visit both the SquidooHQ and RocketSquid Forums. They help answer questions, give feedback and you can showcase your lenses there.
