My grandmother taught me to knit when I was young, but it's only been a serious part of my life for a few years. I have some good friends of mine to thank, for making me realize that knitting isn't just for old ladies anymore (if it ever really was), and for helping me learn new techniques and offering inspiration along the way. I'm also learning to crochet (thanks to the wonderful interwebs) and I have been known to cross-stitch from time to time.
I live in Toronto, Canada with my two girls, four cats, and my wonderful husband who patiently tolerates my yarn addiction.
I'm a self-diagnosed nerd, and I'm proud of it. Some of my favourite obsessions (besides knitting) are science-fiction, ancient history, fantasy, mythology, and video games. Halloween is my favourite day of the year (and also my anniversary), and I could happily live the rest of my life on grilled cheese, sushi, and nanaimo bars.
