about me

My name is Karen and I am a wife and mother who knits to relax.  I have an daughter who recently married in the summer of 2015 and relocated to the west coast and a son who is off at grad forging his path.  So with an empty nest, I'm rediscovering myself.   My journey is evolving and I love this stage of my life.

Interesting tidbits about little old me:

-I love to read, and I alternate between thought provoking novels to whimsical ones
-starting and finishing knitting projects
-and the middle part of knitting projects
-laceweight yarn and fingering weight yarn-the thinner the better
-walking my dog, Frodo, with my husband when it's not hot outside
-taking photos with my big camera (dslr nikon 5100) and my iphone 6
-drinking decaf green tea, my favorite brands are Stash and Yogi
-collecting roosters, the not alive ones!!
-sitting on the backyard swing daydreaming
-WINTER, yes, I am one of those odd people
-and Autumn too
-quiet mornings with a cup of coffee, a pen and a journal
-ravelry (of course)
-black olives
-salads with lots of crunchiness
-making lists for just about everything
