I am a busy working mom of one 13 year old boy. My husband is a student. I love knitting but am not very fast and find I think about it more than I actually knit. I learned to knit from my Mom and babysitter - the babysitter knit the most amazing Barbie clothes. I made my first sweater in High School and completed some Fair Isle mittens, however it was put away until about 6 years ago. I have finished a few sweaters and am trying to get better at putting them together. The finishing is my bugaboo.
