I am 48 yrs, married 30 + yrs. 2 grown sons married 3 Grandchildren. 2 dogs, 1 cat, 70+ tropical fish. Big stash of different yarns, that is all over the place, cupboards boxes, bags. Keep promising to not buy anymore mmmmmm!! Like to knit Chunky & Extra Chunky and Aran patterns. Jumpers, Cardigans, shawls, different types of slippers novelties knick knacks, tea cosies etc. Would love to knit a cobweb lacey shawl or own one. (One day) Can manage simple crochet stitches and follow easy patterns, but would love to learn to follow a decent crochet pattern. Have aquired a knitting machine, hope to get rround to using it, when I can work how. Ha ha. Enjoy taperesty and cane work. Learning to play the piano ha ha! Well trying. Do these hobbies to keep me sane - when I can, as I have an aggressive form of arthritis and spinal problems amongst other health problems. Enjoy a good joke, and have a sense of humour. Internet has been a life line. Like to chat with fellow knitters and yarnies, ha ha! and exhange ideas, patterns and ideas.
Live on the outskirts of Portsmouth just over Portsdown Hill. So, enjoy the counrty views one side and seaviews the other. Looking around the Harbour and Solent and Isle of Wright and Southsea beaches on clear says.
