I am a transplant to NY from Chicago for my husband's job. I have been knitting & crocheting since I was 9 (& that was many decades ago). I was taught what the teacher called the European method of knitting although I have no idea what the real name is. I only know that I could knit much faster than my friends since I do not "throw" my yarn over. Anyway, I have really enjoyed your site and am sure I will continue to find new ideas, patterns and tips. I am an avid charity knitter and make scarves, afghans and baby blankets for many different organizations along with knitting for my children, grandchildren and friends. Nanette Miller

We live 45 miles north of Albany - 10 miles north of Saratoga Springs. It is absolutely gorgeous and our backyard is an acre of woods but the snow this year is ridiculous - so far around 84 inches. Don't mind the winter but this has been a challenge.

Have been doing all sorts of needlework for many, many years but almost 3 years ago, I had a bad accident trying to keep my son's old lab from falling down the deck steps and instead I fell, totally shattered an ankle and had it rebuilt with metal plates and bolts. With the second necessary surgery to remove part of the hardware, I was not able to walk for over 2 years. I can tell you I did ALOT of knitting, crocheting, needlepoint etc. to keep from losing my mind while stuck in a lazyboy for all that time. It was such a wonderful way to vent my frustrations with lack of mobility for so long. At least I got something accomplished.

So nice to hear from you. Nanette
