Knitter, crocheter, designer, and master crafter.

Mechanical engineer, experienced knitter, and master crafter.I have been knitting and crocheting for years and I love all types of crafts. There is something about creating something for someone from start to finish, there's really nothing quite like that feeling. I often encounter people that see something that's been made and they immediately say "I wish I could do that.", and I always say "You can!" My ultimate goal is to try to make that wish a reality for people, there are so many amazing tools and projects out there, all you need is a little time and patience. I still remember how excited I was when I created my first project and I want others to feel that same accomplishment, you CAN learn to knit and paper craft and you should! You can check out my blog for reviews and project ideas.
