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.
