This is Me

You can e-mail me at

I llive on a creek just off the Nanticoke River south of Seaford, Delaware.  I have been married for twenty-five years.  I have a forty-one year old daughter and a twenty-two year old son.  I worked for the federal government for thirty-five years and retired at the age of fifty-nine. 

Nannie taught me how to embroider when I was four or five, I think.  I know it was before I learned to read and write.  When I was eight or nine, she showed me how to sew.  Often, she would do the cutting because she hated to see me do it.  I am left handed and she said I looked like I was in pain.  She tried to teach me how to crochet, but I couldn’t get it. 

I didn’t learn to knit until I was twelve.  I was in junior high school and started walking with a girl in the neighborhood. I often went to her house after school and she taught me how to knit.  It was very ackward at first and I didn’t think I would ever learn.  I never realized until much later that it was probably because I was knitting right handed. 

I finally learned to crochet in my late twenties by sitting in front of the teacher.  It worked! In no time I was doing everything, even if it was left handed. 

Learning to knit backwards was a no brainer.  I am a real whiz at entrelac and intarsia.  If and when I ever get organized, I will post entrelac patterns.

    Hi Fluffy! I found your blog in my tag surfer and wouldn’t you know we are less than 20 minutes apart? I’m in Delmar, DE, so good to meet you, neighbor!

    FYI, there are 2 knitting groups in the area. One meets at Barnes & Noble in Salisbury on the 1st & 3rd Sundays of each month from 2-4 p.m., and then my little group can be found here:

    You’re more than welcome to come out and knit with us the next time we get together! 🙂

    Hi, Lady. I got your link from Diane. wonderful to hear about the “best” part of your life- your retirement! I gather that you are doing okay, and finished that lovely scarf. I will always remember the combinations you created and beautiful knitted cistas of color.

    Always fond of you!

    Hello, I stumbled on your blog because I posted about remodeling our garage and it suggested one of your posts. I am not a knitter but I love your blog 🙂 Perhaps one day I’ll learn to knit! I will have a spare room after a while to fill with the hobby of my choosing…
