I learned to knit when I was a little girl, using the Lady Bug book my mum bought for me. Alas, I never made it further than a garter stitch tie for my dad and a couple of attempts at scarves. I just didn't have the patience or perseverance and books probably won out over knitting.
Then my sister-in-law took up knitting. And so did a friend of mine. Suddenly I felt the urge to try it again, despite problems with carpal tunnel syndrome. So I did. And I LOVE it. What's even better, my wrists don't seem to mind it much either.
So now I'm knitting up a storm, as evidence by the growing pile in my knitting basket and the various projects scattered about. I've even trained to cats to behave round my needles and yarn (well, most of the time).
I'll post pics here of my works-in-progress as well as my FOs. Also look for me over at Romancing the Skein.
I live with my husband and our two cats on the beautiful Sunshine Coast in British Columbia, Canada. In May 2006 we moved here from the Ottawa area, where I've spent most of my life.
I work part-time as a Library Technician at the local library in Sechelt and just LOVE it. When I'm not at work, I'm writing - either my current wip, or articles and reviews, or volunteering at the Sunshine Coast Museum and Archives.
My husband and I share a passion for history - we met in a university seminar on Medieval England. That passion led me to the world of historical romance fiction. One day I hope to be published, but even if that never happens, I'll continue spinning love stories set in the past.
Favourite periods: Middle Ages, French Revolution, Georgian England
