I come from a family of knitters, weavers, and fiber artists, so it was only a matter of time for me to fall head first in to knitting. I learned how to knit at age 5, but really picked it up again durring collage. I have a BFA in painting, but spend most of my time knitting, being a mom, and working at what I think is the best yarn store out there, www.twistedpdx.com.
