I'm a 29 years young East German with actually over 20 years knitting & crocheting experience. My 8 year young son is my cutie and my pride - for him I'm knitting and crocheting a lot, right now he want me to knit him a toy fish in neon colours!
I'm 'reporting' and showing off my projects at ravelry under the ID watja :)
Knitting and crocheting basics I learned from my mother when I was 8. Later I had a knitting course in the college during my education as a child caring nurse and started knitting bigger projects like my first socks (the first one was huge!), hand puppets and doll clothes.
Recently I started spinning my own yarn using a bottom whorl spindle, which is fun - for my son as well.
