Hi there- Iive in Germany next to Nürnberg and I love knitting. I learnt it it from my grandmother and since then I was always looking for knitting projects- I love cozy wool and yarns. As my sister lives in the US - I got some wonderful books with knitting patterns and pictures...so I started to knit also with American patterns some years ago. It is really quite different than with our German patterns.- but I like it very much.And I think there are very, very creativ designers in the States.
I have a wonderful husband who also likes knitted sweaters- especially the Aran ones- and there are so beautiful and tricky patterns ....besides Arans I like Lace knitting and Cables, Color knitting, Felting and so much more.......
Besides knitting my other hobbies are gardening and reading- hiking and travelling to all different places where my daughter is studying. As she studies hotel management- we see a lot of different places......and very interesting shops where I can buy wonderful yarns.
I love classical music- and fortunately our son plays violin- and so we have kind of concerts every day.- best of it- I can sit at home and knit- what would be a little bit strange to do this in a concert hall. Knitting belongs to my life as long as I can remember sitting on my Grandma's sofa.
