Professional software developer. Amature knitter

Professional software developer, amature knitter. Ive been knitting since i was 7 years old and I love the satisfaction of creating something you can wear or use. There's nothing quite like having someone ask where you bought something and you tell them you made it yourself. Ive taught countless people over 30 years and want to pass these skills on to as many people as possible.
