I am a Ph.D. student who knits and otherwise crafts in her spare (ha!) time. I absolutely adore knitting. I have been knitting for pretty much all my life; I first learned in the second grade, when my aunt taught me. My other primary crafts, cross stitch and beading, are additions in the last few years, but I love them too!
