First I crocheted, then tatted. I could knit but never really did. For years all I wanted to do was make lace. I love the negative spaces created by lace. At some point I was hit by the knitting bug.And being a bit obessive I am still at it. Mostly socks for my daughter. But I do venture into other areas of knitting. I love the look of fine knitted lace, but have little desire to create it. My lace gene must have gotten over worked at some point.
