I live in the beautiful Pacific Northwest. I really love knitting and have been doing so since I was a small child watching my German Aunt knit socks. At that point I was hooked. It all looked so intriguing. I have a big family (7 children) so I am always busy with something or other. I don't get as much knitting done as I would like. My problem is I have too many other hobbies that are so much fun as well. I am in the process of learning pattern drafting as sewing is one of my hobbies also. But this forum will surely add more fun to this whole process. Looking forward to reading all the great stories.
