Deby Lake on

I live in the quaint Alpine City of Gaylord MI. I learned to knit from my great grandmother at the age of 8. I am also known as O/C Knitiot, and I come by it naturally. Everything has to match & balance in my knitting. My friends tease me, but I secretly fear they will bury me with mismatched socks to get even.
