Thanks to your e-mail full of Florida sunshine, I was able to wear these on my way to work today:
What a small world - I grew up in East Meadow, lived in Williston Park and Carle Place at some points, and settled in Bay Shore 9 years ago. As much as I like the South Shore, each year it gets tougher to stay put on the Island.
Wow...knitting/crocheting since you were 8. Both always interested me, but I didn't pick up the needles until 5 years ago. My Mom taught me how to embroider when I was 6, so I guess the Craft Bug got me then!
I haven't tried crocheting yet, but from the sound of it, I'll have plenty of people to guide me when I finally take the plunge!
