About the Purse-Ho…

I’m a 30-something child-less, husband-less (but i do have a boyfriend) ABC, born in Texas and still in Texas. I’m originally from ELP, but I’ve been living in the DFW area for over a decade now.   I am the director of a small division of a much larger healthcare company. 🙂   I love my job.  I love my co-workers.  I’m truly blessed w/ where I work. 🙂

I learned how to knit when I was 8 yrs old.  I asked my mom to teach me when I saw a picture of a sweater on needles in a Japanese soap craft book.  My mom tried to help me, but I didn’t understand that she didn’t know how to knit.  So i took a pretty pair of pink chopsticks that i never used b/c they were too pretty to eat with, and I went and asked my friend’s crafty mommy.  She taught me how to cast-on, knit and purl.  I never made anything worthwhile when i was that age.  I would just knit long strips of garter stitch and then put them away. imagine how wonky the gauge would be on a pair of chopsticks. 🙂   Things have come full circle.  I have given my friend’s sister knit gifts for her children and her mom was there to see it all.  And she had forgotten that she taught me all those years ago! hahaha.

Back in 1999, I decided I wanted to make myself a scarf for some one-day freeze that happened here in DFW.  I picked up the needles again and never put them back down.

My other hobbies include reading, shooting/owning handguns, bargain hunting, photography, sewing, watching crap TV, computers computers, cooking, baking, and just hanging out w/ friends and having a good time. 🙂

this blog is here for me to blog about knitting, crochet, purses and some tidbits about my life. It’s not all that awesome or hilarious. It’s more just goofy than anything. 🙂
