I'm mainly a knitter. I've tried a lot of the other crafts and am working at improving myself at them but whenever I feel down I just remind myself I'm a knitter and everything feels better. My great grandmother was a knitting instructor in a department store. She died before she could teach me but a few years later I decided to make some roots to my ancestors and learn knitting. It feels wonderful to be a part of such history.
