I have had a long love affair with fashion. In the early years of childhood and adolescence, that love affair reared itself in sewing. Then, winter and its fury brought unusual lengths of time house bound and my family and I found ourselves cognizant of neighbors and their safety. It was a wonderful, then-elderly neighbor lady during the height of Buffalo’s infamous blizzard of ’77 who first introduced me to knitting sharing with me all of her beautiful creations. We were company during the storm, there being a deep snow trench between our houses. It was her kindness and skill that allowed me to knit a basic crewneck sweater. I’ve being smitten ever since.
After a long career in public education, I continue with knitting and continue to be inspired by fashion. With the onset of the internet, and wanting to share and connect with other knitters around the world, photography entered the picture. I became highly interested in the marriage of knitting and photography getting inspiration from fellow knitters, local historical sites, as well as nature’s four-season color and texture. I am ‘theyarnista‘ on Ravelry.
