I am an American who has lived and traveled in many places. Most recently (up until 5 years ago), my retired husband and I lived in Ireland. I am a retired French major, geographer, economist, and librarian. We relocated to Seattle in 2010. Fibre crafts have been a popular activity all my life. My current emphasis is on knitting - it used to be weaving. I read widely so in addition to comments on knitting I will probably discourse at times on books - and maybe also on music and current affairs and my genealogy.
