My mother taught me how to knit when I was 8 years old and I have been knitting ever since. That's for about fifty years, give or take. My early years were spent in graphic design until I soon discovered the joys of the natural world -- gardening, horticulture, landscape design, botany and environmentalism. That's a pretty big box of paints. I worked in horticultural fields and landscaping management and design for many years in Wilmington, Delaware, Laramie, Wyoming, and Austin Texas, knitting all along the way. In Ellensburg, Washington I became a Master Gardener and I worked and taught in a knit shop there. Born and raised in the mid-Atlantic state of Delaware and having lived, knitted, and gardened in Maryland, Wyoming, Texas, Washington and California, I have a broad spectrum knowledge yarns through time and of the kinds of plants that will grow and flourish and these different kinds of climates and soils. I am a passionate reader of history, non-fiction, awarded fiction (I've been reading too long to tolerate anything but the best and most intelligent of wordsmiths) and, guiltily, mystery/thriller/police procedural fiction. So, knitting and all things plants have become the hallmarks of me. I would love to share my knowledge and experience with you.
