i was born with a restless soul; always wanting to create things with my hands. for me, creating was a way to be closer to my Creator.
when my sweet grandmother taught me how to crochet at 16, i immediately began to create and explore the craft. i love to live on the wild side and prefer to create my own patterns. in my senior year of high school, i joined 'knitting club' and first learned to knit.
i still have the first thing i created. it is sprinkled with holes and added stitches. it was casted on and pulled off many times as tears were shed.
but there is nothing like a finished piece.
personally, knits warm not only my neck, but my soul. when i have the opportunity to share them with friends, i feel like i'm spreading love. i also share my gift of knitting as the sponsor of 'knitting club' at the very school where i teach English and social studies.
knits & knots is a place for me to express my creativity and engage in something that i love every part of. i hope you like them too.
in the spirit of love, i am giving away an oversized cowl of your choice.
