Welcome to my rambling commentary on all things knitterly.
I find knitting to be endlessly fascinating. Unfortunately few in my inner circle feel the same, so I turn to the ‘Net to find others who share my obsession, er, passion, for the fiber arts.
I came to Tennessee from Iowa many years ago to finish my degree in English. That’s right. Tennessee. To study English grammar (my little daughter has memorized all 23 pronouns PLUS two she learned from her Pepa: “y’all” and “you’nses”).
Anyway, after a few crazy years in college, I began to really search for God, studying the Bible in earnest and finally recognizing that Christ was the only way out of the mess I had made of my life while depending on the “wisdom” that popular culture had offered. Simply put, meeting the Christ of the Bible and seeing Him lived out in the daily lives of a few others turned my world upside down! His love for me changed everything, and I never wanted to be without Him again. I was baptized into Christ in January of ’95.
In December of ’96 I married a proud, true-blue Tennesseean I’d met at church. The man puts his hand over his heart and faces south when he hears “Freebird” on the radio — need I say more? A genuine country boy who, though he may be a rocket scientist by trade, is happiest when he’s “huntin’, fishin’, or cavin’, ” and so I’m likely to be below the Mason-Dixon Line a while. As in forever. For a midwestern Yankee like myself, life in the South is the ultimate cultural onion. There’s always another layer to peel. Keeps things interesting.
I’m the grateful mom of two gorgeous, bright, healthy children. Caleb is almost 11 and Sarah Mae is 8 . My husband, Tim, is an electrical engineer who is fortunate enough to work out of his home office. I am now a former English grammar and composition teacher who left public school after just one crushing (and eye-opening) year. My husband I now teach the kids from home, an opportunity for which I’m very, very, grateful. So far, so good.
Life is good. Thanks for visiting. Stop by anytime. Bring chocolate.
