    Hi everyone!

    I'm Peg. I'm 54 years old and have been knitting since I was 20. I taught myself to crochet when I was pregnant with my first child. My mother had tried to teach me when I was a teenager and I was too stubborn and argumentative. She finally gave up and told me I would have to figure it out on my own if I wanted to do it. I tried to teach myself to knit when I learned to crochet, but I determined that crocheting was a lot quicker. I eventually did learn to knit also and I have certain things that I like better in knit than crochet. My favorite thing to crochet has to be doilies, although I do like to use crocheting for charity because it works up faster. Other things I'm into are: gardening (I have an herb garden and a few veggies growing in my apartment since it gets way too hot here to put them outside), sew, cook, and play the violin. I also like to play Dungeons & Dragons, facebook games, and read. I am disabled with arthritis and fibromyalgia and don't work. I share an apartment with my adult daughter and my little dog, 2bits. I look forward meeting everyone and making friends! Hugs, Peg
