map-pin New Zealand

Yes I am one of those knitaholics, crochet too. I love giving my handwork to charities and op shops, also a lot of newborn babies benefit from my generosity. I try to limit my activity to a couple of projects at a time, but things are way out of control. I keep track of yarns and needle or hook size for garments with an inventory book, each time I start a new project. Then when finished I tick off with the date. Some take months some a couple of days. I am time rich now so manage to complete plenty of projects in a week. I mostly enjoy making toys and baby items, if making a garment for myself it can sometimes take a year. I am drawn to the outdoors and love walks, gardening which I have an average size one,and spend a huge chunk of my time with the grandchildren.
