Occupation: Homemaker - retired Interests: knitting, crocheting, quilting, and painting Biography: Married for 28 yrs to my best friend James.
We have 2 furry babies. CaliGirl a female Calico Cat (sadly our CaliGirl is no longer with us we buried her August 30th 2012..She allows us to live in our home lol..Also a baby Chihuahua female named Channel..She DEMANDS her time lol..but she sure is cute when I dress her in chiffon..or her winter coat..or red sweater I knitted her..BOTH rotten spoiled lol
I learned to crochet from my grandmother at the age of 9..I made a varigated beige granny square cardigan..I loved it..and knit when I was a young bride of 16 living in Germany as a military wife
A pregnant neighbor taught me to knit..so I held the needles like she did..on my belly. lol
..over the years I only knitted a scarf or 2 and did manage to knit a mans vest in basketweave..however it frustrated me so much ..I just crocheted the sleeves lol.
About a year ago I bought Knitting for dummies..suited me lol and taught myself to knit socks..So far I have completed 2 pair of socks and 5 half pairs, a kewl berry stitch knitting bag with knitting needle handles, a leaf pattern stole.
As you can see I am a knitting addict..with NO 12 step program to help lol Website: http://community.knitpicks.com/profile/Camilla
