I cannot remember how or when I started crafting, but most likely at school back when girls were taught sewing and knitting, while the boys had woodcrafting. Nowadays, I work hard at insulating my house with yarn and make my family handmade gifts for every occasion, regretting the lack of time for knitting. But never regretting my stash buildup! A girl's gotta have choice!
