Also known as "Sox Pox" during Sock Wars III and "Strickteufelin" on Ravelry. Learned to knit at the age of eight. First pullover at 14. Been hooked (or "needled") ever since. Switched from throw to continental at age 17 during a trip to Europe. Also like to quilt and am learning--at the advanced age of 65--to spin! Not good at technology, such as computers, but am trying!
