I've been knitting and crocheting since the early 70's. Hubby and I have spent 20+ yrs as newspaper carriers. If I went back to work in an office, I'd just be wishing I was home knitting. We have 1 son at home, 9 cats and 3 dogs. I garden, have fibromyalgia, and keep an eye to the Goddess. We have 8 grown kids, 6 grand kids. We've bought a house in NC and I finally have a dedicated craft room!
