Love to knit, enjoy sewing, reading and spending time with my family. My grandma taught me to knit as a child, but I didn't keep it up until my 8 yo daughter wanted to learn. I learned to sew on the playground during 3rd grade. We'd sit and make clothes for our dolls. I learned more during home-ec in 7th-9th grade. In the last year I started taking pattern making and other basic sewing to relearn the skills I was missing.
