the Greater San Francisco Area

I started knitting again in 2008 to do something while I was recovering from a failed ankle surgery. I was making lap afghans for hospital patients. I was enthusiastically taught advanced knitting and starting crochet. Now I try to keep it 50/50 and get back into my counted cross stitch and cord rosary making. I'm eclectic and love just about everything.
