I live in New Orleans and am a 28 yr. old african american southern girl.
I have been knitting here and living here since as least 7. I love to knit and watch tv or listen to music. I ike to knit while riding in a car because I don't drive.lol.
I just started using knitting charts for bears, butterflies, elephants etc. My method takes a while but it looks good. I switch needles postions in my hands after each row so it takes longer and the pictures are bigger. I listen to a lot of music and watch a lot of tv while knitting. I sell my stuff to family and friends. I used to knit and show my pieces while living in Durham and Chicago after Hurricane Katrina. I even was knitting in the car while evacuating from the day before Katrina hit New Orleans. It helps my mood and is calming.
