and she designs knitting patterns.
I dream about knitting. I eat, sleep and breath knitting patterns. In a meeting at work -- I should be taking notes on some financial directive, and I am sketching out some stranded color-work pattern or figuring out how to accomplish some knitting project. I have more things bouncing around in my head than I have written down. But not for long. The problem is . . . finding the time to knit it all and having the money to buy all the yarn to make the samples.
She used to design quilting patterns and before that quilts, and before that crocheted afghans and before that -- water color and acrylic paintings.
