Story
Tagline
I love to knit and crochet. I'm also a mother of two awesome boys and a wife.
Introduction
I have been knitting and crocheting since I was a little girl.  My earliest memories are of my Mom crocheting and my Dad knitting.  They started me on a lifetime of crafting.  I'm now in my 30's and want to share my passion with others.
