Occupation Knitting Instructor/Designer
Location San Jose, CA, United States
Introduction My name is Christine Marie Chen. I have two beautiful children and a lot of yarn! I'm a knitting/crochet instructor at Beverly's Fabric & Crafts store. Reading and knitting are like therapy to me! Both help me to unwind after a busy and hectic day! Originally from Oklahoma, I have traveled worldwide and I now eat, sleep, knit and design from my home in the San Francisco Bay Area. These blogs will follow me and my knitting adventures as well as a bit of my everyday life thrown in every now and then. Enjoy!
