MORE ABOUT ME
I like to crochet often but I will knit items from patterns more readily. I started a Prayer Shawl Ministry late in 2009, with my church. I guess I have either knitted or crochet some 40 shawls, either for adults or young children. That is a conservative number but at this point I have lost count as our group work hard together. There are certain skills or techniques that I have not attempted either because when I did try them I struggled with them or I just thought they were too difficult to learn from a book. I did learn over the years I do better when I can see a particular stitch being done in front of me, as apposed to reading the description of how to do the stitch. My stash of yarn has consisted of what I could afford and what others have donated to my efforts. Needless to say I have done very little work with real yarn (Wool). I had a problem with my wrists some few years back, and thought I would have to give up Knitting and crocheting, but for me that would be like giving up breathing. Ha! Ha! Funning asside, I really would not like to have to quit. I went through the surgery and have not looked back.
