I'm a native New Yorker. Been living in Florida for 20 yrs with my 4 children (Amy 27, Phillip 25, Bob 21 and Lacey 16) and my husband of 28 yrs. I also have a little granddaughter (Aa'Niyah - we call her Niy) and expecting another grandchild in late fall. I've been knitting and crocheting since I was about 12 yrs old. I'm now in my 50s and I love receiving these new patterns.
