About Me:
I've lived in the Sacramento area all of my life. I work as a sign language Interpreter at a middle school. I began in earnest to knit again in 2001, after my dad, father-in-law, and cousin died within a 2 month period. Knitting helped me "keep my sanity" and reminded me how much fun it was! I've been doing it since. Can't seem to put those needles down!
My family, husband, sons, "pretend granddaughter, and aunts, friends and the cancer center have all been recipients of various shawls, afghans, capelets, chemo hats, gloves, purses, and socks on many occasions.

It's been quite a while and lots of projects since my last post. I've added a few more pictures. All hats in my album have been donated to the UC Davis Medical Cancer Center. Most of the baby sweaters were donated to UMCOR, which is a wonderful group of women who donate their time and craftiness to make packages to be shipped to countries in need.

Sorry about the afgan, when we get bored with something it is hard to finish or wating to start something new instead, sounds like you will finish it, a long time ago I made a ziz zag afgan, you know the ones that go up and down, in white and turquoise, and one day my husband came home and I was sitting on the floor surrounded by little balls, I had look at that afgan and told my self I don't like this, it was only being bored and out went an afgan, LOL, It would have been better to give it away, he never said a word, Hugs Irene

I never though of felting the dish cloths, what a neat idea, I crochet some that are thick and that is my Ds first choice, I do like to make them, my GD just asked for some and told my D and she said me to, so will be knitting and crocheting. Hope all is well and happy knitting. Irene
