My maternal grandmother taught me to cast on and knit when I was very little. I taught myself to purl and bind off twenty years later. Fifteen years later, I became obsessed. My stash is huge. Plus the magazines and books. I’ve embraced knitting as a lifestyle. I could get so much more done if only I didn’t have to work to pay the bills and buy the yarn. By day I work in television production, it pays for all the yarn. By night I surf ravelry and blog when I should be knitting. On Saturday’s I try to sleep late and practice stash enhancement, and on Sunday’s I teach Sunday School to a really great group of pre-schoolers.
