Rebecca got started knitting about 13 years ago as a way to keep her out of trouble. The experiment failed miserably as she got into all kinds of trouble with knitting, spinning, weaving, stitching and general yarn hoarding. She can be found in the wild carrying yarn of some kind, working at a local yarn store, or teaching classes in knitting and weaving to unsuspecting prey.
