One-Line Bio

I'm happily married, and have Nick and Nora, our two cats.


I'm that rare creature, the native Mainer. Born and raised in Aroostook County (that tippy-top part that sticks into Canada), living currently in Maine's mid-coast region. I like to knit, but my knitting is hampered somewhat by the fact that I had a stroke in April 2010, leaving my right side paralyzed. Posts from before that time show my regular knitting, and posts after that show what I have accomplished so far.
