I am Eugenia and live in Manassas, about a mile (as the crow flies) from the Battlefield. I love to knit and sometimes it seems to take over my life. I have taught knitting and crocheting classes at Michael's, AC Moore, all local libraries, and at a new yarn shop, Needles in the Haymarket.
I am about to finish level II of the Masters program. The written work slows me down. I have so many notes about the history of knitting that it has become a major task, for me.
In my other life before retirement, I was a Reading Specialist. I owned and operated a tutoring center in Manassas for several years. I met my husband at UVA where we were fellow graduate students getting our doctorates in education. After graduation we spent 4 years at Stanford on a research grant. We have two adult children(?), a son in Cincinnati, and a daughter in San Francisco.
Currently on the needles, a gansey which I designed for my husband. It has a nautical theme with 5 charts to follow. I must have been crazy to attempt this, as he has gone two winters without it being completed. He has stopped asking how it is going.
Enough for now. I'll be back again.
