Welcome to knittingnirvana

Hi everyone. I've been a seeker and lover of vintage and collectible items for years. I love their "soul". Now that I have retired from a teaching career of 33 years, I have the time to pursue that passion as well as my passion for knitting. I have been knitting since I was six, when my father (yes, my father) taught me how and crocheting since ten. I am always looking for new and different yarns and color combinations. We live in the Buffalo, New York area where Lake Erie usually deposits 3 to 4 feet of snow on my back deck every winter and where a 4 wheel drive vehicle is a must. My whole family has benefited and has been kept warm and cozy by my knitting projects. I would like to do the same for yours. More »
