Needle Arts

I've always had a love affair with knitting. My mother taught me the basics when I was about 10. After a few scarves and hats, my projects became more ambitious,  and an aunt took me under her wing. I still remember (and still have!) the first sweater I knitted. By then I was about 13, it was the 70s, and my purple turtle neck was more of a dress than a sweater. And I was so proud of it! It was delightful to me at that age, and still today, that I could take sticks and strings (well... knitting needles and yarn) and create beautiful things.

I am excited to announce that Cloud 9 is offering knitting workshops for kids age 8 - 12 and a knit circle on Saturdays for adults and kids. You will find me there.
