About me

Industry Education
Occupation Administrative Assistant
Location Salem, Massachusetts, United States
Introduction I've developed an obsession for knitting. Aren't I lucky? There's something nostalgic about knitting, something that ties us to a simpler time. So by choice, I've been stitching forever and ever and ever ... More about me? Well I learned to crochet from my great-grandmother when I was 10 years old but put it aside until I turned 19 and learned over again from a co-worker and books. Crochet was my passion for many years after that. I had learned to knit & purl from my mother when I was age 15. But she taught me left handed (I’m right-handed) so I was slow and I then put it aside until I was 23 when I retaught myself from a book to knit right handed and then knit two things for my new born. But once again I thought knitting was slow so I didn’t knit again until only 10 years ago. (I’m an old lady now) I’m serious about my knitting. VERY serious. I guess you could say I’m OBSESSED. So I’m happiest when I’m knitting or needle felting or crocheting! But I have also done cross stitch, embroidery, needle point, hand quilting, and sewing. I guess you could say I’m …. the StitchingNut.

Which is more important to you and why: flexibility or expandability?

Judging by my expanding waistline, expandability is more important. Why? Well I think I can kiss my flexibility goodbye these days!
