Since my habit of browsing certain knitting pages was suddenly and harshly terminated some time ago, I have been able to actually get some things done around the home… and here I am again! I can see I’ll be getting back into my old habits.
I actually thought I had joined in the beginning, but because of having to travel much of 2018 and 19 due to my mom being in hospitals and her passing, I guess I just forgot about everything else. Being able to knit during that time sure helped calm me and fill up long hours.
I saw the post on fb about people not checking in often and remembered, so here I am! I am glad to see something going where I can once again check on others projects etc. I like to see what something looks like done in my choice of yarn!
This is a copy of what I put in my biography: Born in beautiful “Almost Heaven” West Virginia, moved to the Andes mountains of country of Ecuador in 1969, and then to the flat, dry Texas Panhandle in 1978. I love crafts of all kinds, having grown up in countries that are rich in fiber arts. I pretty much self taught a sort of knitting as I had no access to any books at 15…made a purse and quit. (Ive since found out I was backward knitting)
A few years ago after having done crochet for some years, I determined and challenged myself to learn real knitting. As I was sitting with my husband for hours in waiting rooms and a surgery, the knitting helped me to concentrate on something other than possible outcomes. (which turned out great as he is still doing well, by the grace of God, 5 yrs later!)
I really love knitting and am still learning…and well we should keep learning all the time!
I look forward to checking out everything here! (I apologize for the length of my post.)
