I am a 63 year old wife, mother, grandmother. I am a registered nurse, childbirth educator, lactation consultant. I have been knitting since I was 8 years old. My newest passion is socks and just can't seem to get enough sock yarn and knitting for myself (finally) and my family and friends. I think what I like so much about socks is how portable they are and that knitting them does not make me "hot" in the summer with something hanging in my lap. I also like the creativity involved in making something that will almost never be duplicated.
