I am originally from England, UK. I have lived in California for several years with my husband, two girls and one dog.
I miss British sweets, especially "Galaxy" chocolate. I miss John Lewis and Liberties (Stores) in England. I would spend my whole lunch hour break in John Lewis or Liberties, looking at patterns and yarn and planning knitting projects. I miss walks in the open English countryside and the sound of the trees and the grass in the wind. I miss English accents. I listen to the English radio ~ BBC Radio 2 ~ via the internet.
I love my family. I love watching my girls growing into little people. I love watching my girls knit, sew and crochet and especially when my youngest (10) knits while watching TV~that's my girl! My eldest is so creative. Both girls love soccer and we spend many hours at the field. Where I am either crocheting, reading watching of course or knitting. I love summer's in California. I love the sunshine. I love Septembers in California so beautiful. I love that you can see the ocean and snow in the same day here in California.
I miss my career of being a Designer. I miss being creative on a daily bases. I love the math and the creativity in Knitting. I have been an avid knitter all my life, my Mum taught me. My Mum was the best knitter! She told me once that she would take her knitting on dates with her. Especially when going to the cinema :-) I have pictures of me wearing fair isle twin sets my Mum knit me. I love knitting. I love knitting and reading at the same time. I'm never alone with my knitting in fact I am in my own "moment". I always make friends when I knit in public. I cannot be with out my knitting ~ it is Sheer Bliss to me!
