I have been knitting and crocheting for over 55 years, having learned at the age of 5. After retiring in 2011, I am able to pursue my dream of designing my own patterns and sharing them. Thank you for looking and join us at Knitting Paradise http://www.knittingparadise.com/ for lots of fun and information.
