Although not an embryonic knitter, I will admit to 40+ years of working with needle, thread, and yarn. After a varied career, including obituary writer, software technical editor, and visual effects producer, I decided to retire. Ha! My husband, myself, 2 dogs, 4 cats, and oodles of yarn moved to the mountains of Arizona. There, a life long passion for fiber and crafts blossomed into a new career of Knitting Patterns and Classes.
