My knitting adventures started not so gloriously when my mom used to take me to the local knitting store. I was dragged there against my will and one day, in the midst of my boredom, I stumbled across a knitting book that didn't look so boring. It had women who hadn't yet gone through menopause and patterns that even looked (in my 15 year old eyes) kind of cool! I perused the book until I happened upon a pattern for a Wonder Woman bikini. OMIGOD, you can knit things besides afghans and socks?! That bikini was the first big project I made and I still own it (and wear it!) as a testament to the beginning of the fabulous relationship between me and my knitting.
I happened upon etsy when my little creations started to pile up around me. I thought, what the hell, maybe will eventually buy something... Now I have custom orders out my ears and I'm hard pressed to find time to create new goodies. But...
