Am a new member of this community and looking forward to learning a lot. Have been knitting since I was five years old, taught by my mother, and kept up, even with dropped stitches, and every thing going wrong. Knitted for two son's, husband and self, then grandchildren came along, and that was a wonderful experience, except that two grandson's are now too big,( over 6ft 4'') and teen agers but love knitting for two little granddaughters in the UK.
Learnt to spin after we retired to a hobby farm and had a good life style with my favorite animals, Sheep. Sadly age started to catch up with us, and had to leave the farm, and become suburbanites, but now love being close enough to every thing that we can walk, or husband can ride his bike to shops. Found a wonderful Spinning and Weaving group to belong to and life goes on with lots to keep us busy, and happy. Love every thing to do with the craft and still learning. Life is a wonderful Rainbow.
