Shirley Slater's Profile

About

I am 70 years old and I've been knitting since my grandmother taught me 60 years ago learning many other crafts over these years. Knitting, crochet, spinning, traditional rug making (proddy and hooked etc.) and painting are my favourites . Since retiring I spend most of my time making socks and stuff, both hand knitted and cranked on an antique sock machine, and designing and making rugs, fitting in other crafts when I can. Not enough hours in the day.
