Craft(s) of Choice: Knitting

I was addicted to Meth on and off for years and was only able to finally get clean by moving out of state. My mom taught me to knit before I moved across the country and I spent all of my time knitting garter stitch scarves because she only taught me the knit stitch. To keep my sanity, I spent all of my time knitting these scarves (I had about 50) and eventually found Vickie on my television. So, from that point on, I watched Knitty Gritty faithfully and Vickie Howell became my hero. She taught me to purl as well as many other techniques. I loved seeing how she made something so “old” come to life with a modern flare. To this day, I knit just about everyday, and knitting is definitely my anti-drug. Thank you, Vickie Howell. You are my inspiration!
