One of my talents is from long long ago, and I thought I’d share it because everyone loves a little high school humiliation. Back then, I was a knitter.  I’m talking hours every day. During class, at home, on weekends. Always.  Not just scarves – that would be too basic.  Oh no. You may have noticed that when I do something, I really do it. So I went nuts. I learned double knitting, lace, intarsia (that’s pictures in knitting), everything. I made hats, sweaters, bags…all of it. And no, no I did not get out much.  Thanks for asking.

So obviously I had to wear something knitted to prom.  Behold.  Yeah, I knitted my date’s tie too.
