Hello! First and foremost, I have a distinct and sometimes annoying love of starting projects- there is something about picking out a pattern and the best-suited yarn, and casting on that just soothes my soul like no other. I also get a kick out of finishing projects, although it happens less than I'd like! I have designed patterns before, although I am much more of an executioner and it is all about the process for me. It may take me a year (or three!) to come back to a project and finish it, or I may decide after that long to rip it out and use the yarn for something else. I have been crocheting for about 20 years, and knitting for about 6 years. I teach beginner's knitting and crochet, along with various other specialized classes. I love to make shawls, socks, and occasionally a sweater or two. In my "other" life, I am a zookeeper and animal trainer at Zoo Knoxville, who cares for Black Bears, White Rhinos, Chacoan Peccaries, Yellow-backed Duikers, and a Red River Hog.
