Location Corvallis, OR, United States
Introduction I learned to knit from my mom as a child, but didn't stick with it. In 1995 I quit my career in electronics and moved from Texas to Oregon to attend graduate school at Oregon State University. That first dark and rainy winter I realized I needed an indoor hobby (besides TV and chocolate). Over the winter holiday break, I checked out some books from the local library, bought some needles and yarn, and re-taught myself how to knit. I've been knitting ever since and rarely followed a pattern. I've recently started writing up my designs for others to make. You can find me on Ravelry as SheilaOKeefe.
