Weeeell, because of some administrative hickup I had to join for the second time today. I celebrated my 70th birthday earlier this year and have been knitting for at least 62 years. Potholders first, a woolly cap next, then a sweater from scratchy wool I helped spin - and since then the sky has been no limit. I design my own patterns and likely will never use up all the craft supplies I have amassed over the years. I'm a real textile freak!
