I spent much of my childhood at my beloved grandma’s knee, watching her sew beautiful garments and dresses. She could make anything. Although, Grandma was not really a knitter, she did crochet thousands of lap blankets which she donated to the local hospital she volunteered at. It is her hands I see when I watch myself knitting. It is with her example that I too have spent a large part of my adult life as a volunteer. No doubt she is the main driving force of my life. I will continue sharing my love of knitting in her honor. I do other things I like, too. I cook, I garden, I read, I redecorate our home, I care for our family. But I’m really just a knitter, taking sticks and strings, and making things.
I grew up in Michigan, metro Detroit. Living within twelve miles of where I was born until the end of 2009 when we moved to the desert in Las Cruces, New Mexico. We made another cross country move at the end of 2017. I currently live in Williamsburg, Virginia with my adorable husband, my two youngest sons and youngest daughter (when she is not away at school), our three little dogs and a dozen chickens. I’m looking forward to making our house a home and becoming a Virginian. And there will always be things to knit no matter wear I live.
You can find me pretty much everywhere on the internet with my username kymhretz.
