About

I am seriously addicted to yarn! You can help me out by giving me a job so I can continue to supply my habit!
My patient Grandmother taught me to knit when I was about 8 years old and over the years I've grown to enjoy it more and more.
Children are my passion so most of what I knit, sew or embroider has to do with kids. My husband and I have raised six children, fostered two and now have five grandsons! I have a bit of Irish in my background and have been pretty lucky throughout my life so have chosen the Shamrock as my avatar and name.
We've lived in 9 states all west of the Mississippi but love the Pacific Northwest the best.
