I am really the easiest person! I just love yarn/ knit related things. I collect turtles, skulls and retro pin up girls, love purple and greens best, enjoy reading, many crafts, i sing in an alternative band, teas, etc. I am truly a geek, a hippie child, a punker, a yuppie and a farm girl all in one, just depends on which day you catch me !I am easy! And when things are homemade... even better! I enjoy anything that someone put time and thought into for me.
