I learned to knit as a child, but didn't have it take over my life until 2006.
I'm a knitting, crocheting, spinning, weaving, stay-at-home mom, who recently finished a degree in Biochemistry. I race walk competitively (see photo). I'm also Head Honcho of Gecko Yarns, an etsy shop where I sell hand dyed and handspun yarns.
We are a relatively small group that has been knitting together for the last 5 years +, and while fiber is what brings us together, many other common interests and true friendship is what has kept us together. Casual atmosphere, with lots of laughs thrown in (and the occasional shoulder to cry on when it has been needed). We welcome new attendees. Only caveat: this is for adults only. While many of us have children whom we love, for many, this is the only time for many to have child-free time.
