I'm a former academic medical librarian who left the world of academia for the world of knitting. My time is split between writing knitting patterns and renovating and restoring the nearly 100-year-old house I share with my husband and two dogs. I enjoy a good beer and I could eat Indian food at every meal. I blog at frecklesandpurls.com Instagram: @knittingallison
