I love to knit and crochet. This Christmas (2009) I'm giving a hand-made gift to each of my children and their spouses except 1! I just ran out of time. I like to make my own patterns - I usually make them up as I go and the pieces develop. One of these days I hope to start writing the patterns down.
I teach at the University of Minnesota, College of Design, Interior Design. The students are smarter, more talented, and more fun each year that I teach. I'm blessed to have them in my life.
I live in Minnesota where knitting in the winter is as necessary to stay warm as it is for a creative outlet.
