Meet Gini: I have been knitting regularly for about 19 years. I first learned to knit when I was about 5 years old from my mother but did not go beyond the basic knit/purl. I decided to learn (or maybe “re-learn”) to knit about 20 years ago, but when I went to take lessons at my LYS I found that I already knit Continental and could not seem to make my fingers work for English style. So with encouragement from the owner I stepped right into a few challenging patterns and haven’t put down my needles since.
I love to knit lace, especially shawls. I am very excited to co-host this KAL. I hope to encourage and support you all through this lovely shawl pattern, and maybe those of you who are a little reluctant to try lace will take this opportunity to join in with us.
A little bit about me. I live in Allen, Texas, just north of Dallas. I am a mom to 3 amazing boys, and I am married to a great guy who puts up with all of my various adventures. We have a beagle named Zoe, 3 fancy mice, 3 planted aquariums full of various types of tropical fish and a yard full of antique roses. I am a family nurse practitioner and I also teach nursing school. I just finished my Doctor of Nursing Practice (DNP) degree at Texas Tech University Health Science Center on May 21, 2013.
