I thought I'd introduce myself. I'm really enjoying this site. The forums are great!
I'm a 50 yr. old dialysis nurse, wife, mother of 3 sons and grandmother to a one yr. old granddaughter. We live on a farm, and DH used to have a dairy herd but is semi-retired, driving a feed truck part time and planting crops on the farmland. We live in Ontario, Canada.
I've been knitting since I taught myself at age 12. I really enjoy knitting, but also sew, and quilt a bit. Knitting is still my favourite fibre activity though.
Currently, I'm working on a white "throw" for Son #2 and DIL. It's a pattern from DragonPine Designs, called the "One of a Kind Throw". It is a kit that has several different types and weights of yarns, ribbon, shiny stuff, cottons, eyelash, etc, knit in vertical strips. I have about 100 more rows to go....should be do-able if I get left alone for a few evenings.
I use and really like my Denise needle sets. I have two, so I never ever run out of needles. For the smaller sizes I do use Addi's and have some Brittany dpn sets too for socks.
That's about it for me. I look forward to spending some time reading the posts and getting rid of some of my Yahoo knitting groups that are really getting a bit repetitive topic-wise.
