While I have enjoyed a number of crafts over the years, my greatest joy is knitting and crocheting. My mother taught me to knit when I was quite young; then I picked it back up while in college. It has been my relaxation and creative love ever since. I also love reading (mystery, historical fiction, biography, and most certainly my Bible), and yard work. I'm also working my way through scrapbooking a life time of pictures.
