How long have you been knitting, crocheting or spinning?

Approximately 8 years

What else do you love besides knitting?

As a jeweler, I love my tools, and I get a lot of pleasure out of working with metal and gemstones. I love to dance and sing, and I am a member of a dance group.

What do you want most out of this group?

company, conversation, sharing skills

How would you describe your knitting/crochet style? (i.e. monogamous or multiple projects on the needles; a process knitter or product oriented)

I usually have some kind of lace project on the needles. I have made quite a few sweaters, but have shifted to shawls and scarves because they have a more universal appeal.

Tell us about your current project(s)...

After finishing a 3 pairs of fingerless mitts, a sweater and a crocheted curtain, I've just started on another lace shawl.

Introduction

I am a retired attorney starting a second career as a jeweler. I took up silversmithing and knitting after marrying a musician. I think exposure to his music must have unleashed my own creativity!
