Hello everyone. My name is Marilyn and I learned to knit when I was a teenager (more decades ago than I want to admit to!). My mother taught me. She had been a knitter all her life, as well as a sewer and crocheter and painter. A very creative lady!
My favorite color is blue, but I am also very partial to greens and purples. Right now I find myself strongly leaning towards the color teal. I also love to read, and would very much like it if someone could invent a way that I could read and knit at the same time! But not audio books, please. They are too slow for me because I read very quickly. Quite a disadvantage because that causes me (1) to spend too much money on books, or (2) make lots and lots of trips to the local library, or (3) both of the aforementioned. I don’t mind spending my money on books, but alas, it means I have less money to spend on knitting projects!
I love to get together with other knitters and stitch, while drinking our favorite beverages and yakking up a storm. Speaking of a storm, it’s snowing here, again! I live in a smallish city about an hour and a half east of Vancouver, BC, Canada, and I’m used to mild winters. This year we’ve already had more than our usual amount of snow and I’m so ready for spring to arrive!
Well, that’s enough about me for now. There’s knitting waiting to be done. (I haven’t figured out a way to knit and type at the same time, either!)
