Hello, I have been knitting since I was four years old when I announced to my mom I wanted to knit a skirt formy hamster! She started me out on three needles with sport yarn and I still have the skirt that looks like a machine made it! A perfectionist from the start. I find knitting very calming and Zen like. Since I spent over 6 weeks in the hospital as a teenager knitting was my saving grace. Then when I had a brain tumor removed a few months ago I came home to my knitting to find I couldn't complete a row. I was very discouraged but tried again a week later and since then have finished 2 scarves. So knitting is a very great therapy for me. I look forward to learning and sharing with all of you.
