My Bio

I am retired from the work force, but working on being an entrepreneur.  I am still learning to knit, but have an eye for simple designing and hope to publish some of my designs.

I've been a crocheter since the early 1970's, but just started knitting upon retirement in 2008.  I enjoy it immensely and have even sold some projects. 

I enjoy the education as well:  learning about the yarns, learning new stitches, how does it all come together, working with color, etc.  I truly enjoy Knitting Daily, Knit and Crochet Today, and Shay Pendray's Needlearts Studio.  Unfortunately, they're on early in the a.m. and I often miss them because I killed my alarm clock when I retired.  But, I try to get up early to watch the shows when I can.  I'd love to purchase the dvd's but I'm on social security and it just barely provides a meager existence.  Hence, the desire for entrepreneurship.  I like the hosts of the shows as well:  Eunny, Shay, Bret, and Pokey from The Quilting Arts.  I always feel I've started my day with aesthetics when I can catch their shows. 

One of my goals for retirement was to surround myself with aesthetics as I wasn't able to provide the time when I was in the workforce.  Now, I can do that.  Hallelujah!  Except for the fin'l end, retirement is great!
