Born to Knit

I’ve worked almost all my life and I’ve even liked most of my jobs. I’ve been knitting since I was 5 years old, so when I got the chance to work at Filati Fine Yarn in Rocklin, California, It took me less than a millisecond to say YES!

Working at Filati sometimes takes a lot of effort, but it’s not like working, really. For a dyed-in-the-wool knitter, being in a 2400 square foot room full of yarn is a dream come true.

Sometimes, I want to pinch myself so I know I am really there.

My husband is happy I’m loving it, but he thinks I should bring home more money and less yarn. But what knitter could resist buying fabulous yarn as it arrives.

Janice has even tried to slow me down by asking me to knit scarves and shawls for display. I’ve knitted many in the past few months.

Alan keeps telling people I have bionic arms, but I’m not telling – its my secret.

I hope you’ll enjoy reading my blog. I was born to knit and this is a journal of the things I’ve done, techniques I’ve learned, the wonderful people I work with and meet.

I was born to knit. I hope I can find time to type a little between rows.
