My name is Linda. I live in Clayton, NC. I just started knitting for real on Thanksgiving weekend 2010. I have been married for 10+ years, and we have 3 fur babies. Chewi is in our picture above. Nikki is our Shih Tzu, and Kiddle is our Russian Blue cat. We were lucky enough to find them at separate animal shelters and rescue organizations over the past 6 years. Chewi is the oldest at 6, Nikki is 3, and Kiddle is about 3 as our best guess. We got Chewi and Nikki as pups, but the cat rescue had no idea about Kiddle's age. We think she was around 8 or 9 months when we adopted her. Lucky humans, we are!
