Approximately 8 years
I love working with metal and stones. I love to heat metal and to hammer it. I also dance and sing (I am a better dancer than singer!)
company, conversation, sharing skills
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.
I just finished a large laceweight scarf composed of countless spirals, to take advantage of the variegated yarn. I just started a laceweight scarf in a cream silk/wool yarn; it is unusual for me to work in one color. I also have a sweater which I have neglected for too long.
I make my living as an attorney. I also make and sell jewelry (primarily silver with semi-precious stones). I took up silversmithing and knitting after marrying a musician. I think exposure to his music must have unleashed my own creativity!
