About Me

I am an American woman, married to a Swede. I moved to Sweden (Dalsland) January 2000, where I work as a computer technician. I'm a mother/grandmother/step-mother/bonus grandmother.

Due to dietary concerns, we eat LCHF (low carb, high fat), so no candy or other carbohydrates (other than very dark chocolate), please.

No tea, please, but I LOVE pecan flavored coffee (we even grind our own coffee beans!).

Favorite Crafts

I knit and crochet, although most of my time these days is spent knitting socks.

I’ve been doing some kind of crafting since I can remember. I recently bought 2 looms (a table-top and one slightly larger that sits on it’s own stand) that I desperately want to learn to use. Not sure if I can learn the ins and outs (pun intended!) out of a book. I also quilt, tat, cross-stitch, sew, embroider, and so on.

Favorite Television

Hubby and I watch a lot of crime shows. Although, I mostly use it for background noise while I am knitting. My absolutely favorite show is Extreme Home Makover.

Favorite Books

I used to read, a lot, but now I find that my hands are busy, so I listen to a lot of podcasts (mostly about knitting) and audio books.

Favorite Movies

Narnia, The Princess Bride, The Green Mile, TLOR Trilogy, Star Wars (all of them), old musicals.

Favorite Colors

My favorite colors are purple and plums, black and gray, blues. I wear mostly black/gray and blue with a bright pink thrown in now and then for good measure. I really do not do red, yellow or orange.

Comment: Sandra, I love your fish :) He's great (have you got the pattern, hint). I don't want to use him, he's too good. I might hang him up instead. Thank you so much for a fun swap. Hugs, Susie.

Comment: Thank-you so much. I love the cute little knitted stocking. It is so sweet. It is an exact replica of a large sock right down to the heel. I am in awe as I'm still trying to make a large sock look like a sock LOL The postcard you wrote on looks like such a fun party. I am a member of postcrossing.com so, this will be added to my growing collection.
