About

My mother taught me how to knit and crochet when I was 11 or 12 years old. At first I latched onto crocheting, learning all the different techniques and stitches. Recently I have become obsessed with knitting, I love it!!

I come from a long line of knitters/crocheters, at least 3 generations on my mom’s side. My grandpa on my dad’s side learned to knit in his late 60’s while in Iceland. He makes beautiful baby blankets for each of his great-grandchildren. I too love to make baby things. They work up fast and are so cute!! I have a couple patterns that my Grandma J. and mom made, a baby sweater and booties; I enjoy knowing I am making something she made.

I love to watch TV while I’m knitting. I gravitate toward sci-fi shows like Doctor Who, Ghost Whisperer, Fringe and Stargate but I also like shows like Criminal Minds, Burn Notice, Monk, or Dancing with the…

I love to watch TV while I’m knitting. I gravitate toward sci-fi shows like Doctor Who, Ghost Whisperer, Fringe and Stargate but I also like shows like Criminal Minds, Burn Notice, Monk, or Dancing with the Stars. I love to watch movies as well, but I never watch an R rated movie. Some of my favorite movies include: Harry Potter (all of them), Pride and Prejudice, The Lord of the Rings trilogy, and almost anything with Carey Grant.

I grew up in a military family (my dad was in the air force). I have four older brothers and a younger sister. We have a good time when we are together. I also enjoy doing family history (genealogy), scrap booking, reading, and being an aunt. I volunteer at our local family history center one night a week. AND my favorite person in the whole world is the little girl with red hair and freckles on her nose.
