One of those intro blogs that sort of lets you know who I am and what I am doing.
My husband, Dean and I live in San Diego and both of us knit; I am the one on the right in the red/blue shirt.
I learned to knit when I was in m teens, but stopped after I left fo college. The interest/patience just wasn't there. I started to crochet in my lat 20's and stayed with that for years. It started out as therapy for a rough patch of life I was going through. Kept me sane and from doing damage to myself. I did mostly doilies, and a few table clothes. Made so many things over the years that I have lost count.
I work as the Director of Music for a church that decided to start a Prayer Shawl ministry, and Dean was a founding member of the group. I didn't join in right away, mostly because I was far to busy and wanted the leadership of the group not to feel I was trying to take over. You gotta let these things grow on their own.
Picked up knitting again when I joined the group and haven't set the needles down for a project for awhile. A few shawls, a couple of caplets, a shrug or two and hats. Would like to finsh the hoodie sweater I started a few months ago. It was a "TV project" but it gets a little too hot with the summer weather and no air conditioning.
Our prayer shawl group has turned into a knitting/crochet circle with people working on different projects as well as a few of us working on charity/comfort work. it meets on Tuesday nights in the Kensington area of San Diego. It's a mixed group of people and all are welcome to come. just drop me a line and I can fill you in on particulars.
I'll try to post some pictures in the future of my projects.
