I've been a combined knitter for more than 40 years, and I support my habit by editing books.
I have a husband who is very understanding about having an entire room filled with yarn (and sewing fabric), in addition to clumps of yarn and partially finished garments in other locations around the house. I'm the mother of a 20-something son, who does not understand my fascination.
I knit and sew, but do not spin.
I was born and raised in New York City, but for the last 20 years, I've lived in Westchester County, NY.
Knitting(!), tailoring, reading, swimming, movies, some gardening, cooking, and baking.
