I've been knitting on and off my whole life. I've recently taken it up again because I've had some yarn sitting around the house for years and thought it was about time I did something with it.
My mother taught me to knit when I was young. She is from Italy and it was pretty much expected that girls learn all the needlearts. So, I was taught to crochet, knit, sew, embroider, etc.
Although I've been knitting for some time, I've haven't tackled a complex project in decades. I'm currently working on a sweater, but without a pattern. Hoping to get some guidance as I go along.
I live on the northwest side of the city, have two children and am self-employed. I'm very excited about working with you all.
Susan, I so much enjoyed meeting you and everyone, and I am greatly looking forward to our next meeting.
