Hope I have this figured out...
I live in Rochester, NY in an old house in the City's 19th Ward neighborhood and we love it here. I am a librarian and library manager who is about to retire and spend lots more time knitting. Can you tell I'm excited about that?
I learned to knit when I was in high school from a friend's mom, and started right out with a sweater that would have fit King Kong...a lesson in the value of swatches and gauge! Over the years I've had lots of knitting adventures and loved it all.

I am so glad to hear Hong Kong has a sweater for the cool nights. ;-) (That means a smile and a wink)
I'm a grandma too, and live in a city (Baltimore). Please post again and tell us what is on your needles now!
PS, I have a pair of socks on my needles now......
