I am a knitter. Very few things in life make me happier than some yummy soft yarn, a pair of Addi Turbos, and some time to knit. Fortunately, I have these things in spades, being child-free and at the moment, job-free as well. (for the record, I don't plan to stay child-free forever, but I am enjoying it for now!)
And contrary to stereotype, I am not a grandmother, though I have a huge amount of respect for my own gramma, who taught me to knit when I was little, and all of the other grandmothers who kept knitting alive when it was WAY out of fashion, aka the Orange Acrylic Years. Without our foremothers, we would not be the knitters we are today.
I love Ravelry. This little gem has 65 freakin' hearts right now! It makes my heart sing just to look at it. I love finding new and exciting ways to seek approval from others ;)
