As an only child I found something to keep me busy, crochet. Learned to knit in 1992. A few years later when arthritis became a problem when crocheting I went full time to knitting. Now I knit for the "Gallery des Artisans" (artisan's gallery) in my small town of Casselman, Ontario, Canada. I've also tried just about every craft out there but found knitting the most portable for me.
