My name is Lani and am a San Francisco native who is now living in Central Oregon, just east of the Cascade Mountains in the High Desert.

I am sure that is was my mother who taught me to knit as I remember her knitting socks for my father. I think they were argyle socks as I remember little packets with yarn wrapped around them hanging from the socks.

I am primarily a knitter who spins and am always torn by which thing I want to do. I usually make time to spin on the weekends, but am glad that knitting is portable enough to be able to do that during lunch at work.

I also have a flatbed knitting machine and a circular sock machine that are both sadly neglected. I decided that what I'm doing is collecting the equipment and stash for when I finally retire and have time to do all the things I want.

How do.

Lucky you, Lani, to live in that part of Oregon! What a beautiful place.

Cool that your Mom knitted argyle socks for your Dad - what a sweet memory.

Re knitting as a portable craft, I went from quilting to knitting because I wanted something that was portable. I also began to read the KNITTER'S REVIEW & fell in love with Clara's writing (I am still in love w/her writing ^ .. ^ ) & then I fell for knitting.

Look forward to more of your posts.
