I started crochet when I was about 8 when my grandmother taught me. I took up knitting about 6
years ago and learned the basics from a book and then found a co-worker who was also learning and
fortunately she was a bit ahead in the learning process.
I love to read and I love spending time with my grandkids...one of the girls is learning to crochet !
I have done 2 of the KAL's and learned SO much..love that there is help so readily given, knitters have
big hearts !! I mainly make hats for the NICU at Harris Hospital in Fort Worth. I make a few blankets
that are very simple and lightweight for very small babies.
I just finished moving next door and have "cleaned" house (twice) and found a treasure trove of yarn !!
This has rekindled a fire and I'm knitting hats like crazy.
This site has been a blessing, if there are other knitters in the Metroplex who might be interested in meeting, I'd be up for a lunch or chat.

I started to work for a wee shop down the road and started to knit aran sweaters to order for clients who wanted a panel of "this" and a panel of "that". Lots of fun!

I love music and have played the piano and organ for many, many years and used to teach piano as well. I love reading and start off my day with Bible reading and learning new and wonderful things within those pages.
