I first learned to knit to avoid homework, and now I knit and crochet to avoid housework :D
I first learned to knit so I could take a break from my college classes with something productive. I gradually improved and found I enjoyed designing my own patterns. Everything I design is something I would wear, or would have my children wear. I love simple and elegant designs, and I strive to make my patterns doable for those with little experience knitting or crocheting.
