I have been knitting and sewing since I was a young teen. In my young adult years I didn't do any. I picked it up again when I had my first child. I haven't stopped since. I wish i had more time for my passion but work gets in the way. It's trying to strike a balance. If i didn't work I wouldn't have need for all the items I wish to make and I wouldn't be able to afford this interest. Catch 22? You bet.
