Hi everyone, I am new to the team, thank you Pam for the nice invite. My name is Debbie and I am happily married (16 yrs. on monday) and we have a beautiful and talented teenage daughter Kayleigh. I have been disabled along with my hubby since 2004. Not the life I chose but I have learned to adjust and make good use of the time I have. I love to read, sew, cook, crochet, loom knit, and walking is by far my favorite form of exercise.
I begun a month ago making dishcloths, dishtowels and from leftover scraps of yarn I make coasters., all from 100% cotton yarn. A dear friend of mine gave me the idea when we were talking one day and I was telling her I needed to start replacing my old store bought ones. She simply said, "you crochet, why don't you make them". OMG.....and so that is how it all began.
As I have worked to replace mine, I am now making sets for Christmas Gifts this year. What I like is how well they wash, don't sour and are so absorbent. I absolutely love them, and I think they make wonderful and practical gifts. So I am so delighted to be a part of this group and I am looking forward to making new friends and getting to know you. Thanks for having me.

Everybody tells me that they would love to knit, but they don't have time. I look at people's lives and I can see opportunity and time for knitting all over the place. The time spent riding the bus each day? That's a pair of socks over a month. Waiting in line? Mittens. Watching TV? Buckets of wasted time that could be an exquisite lace shawl. ~Stephanie Pearl-McPhee, At Knit's End: Meditations for Women Who Knit Too Much
