I am a librarian by trade, a knitter in my spare time, and a lover of beer. I live in South Portland, Maine, in a house I just bought with my husband Jim.
I work as a librarian in large part because I love to pursue knowledge. I also like reading, and helping people.
I am a knitter because I love to create things. Things that are warm and fuzzy and beautiful are particularly appealing to me. I learned to knit so that I could make mittens.
I drink beer because it is delicious, incredibly varied in flavor and texture, and a readily available and socially acceptable drug.
I have lived in Maine since I was 4, but because I was born in New Hampshire, my closest friends do not consider me a native Mainer.
