Hello. My name is Deborah. I am a bit of an atypical woman and crafter. A mix of a homebody and extreme sports enthusiast, I find shopping boring, abhor superficiality, and am addicted to knitting, crocheting, mountain biking and rock climbing. A teacher by trade, I taught elementary and middle school in Colorado, China and Bolivia over the course of 11 years. After marrying in 2009, I returned to the states and rediscovered my love of crocheting. I learned to crochet as a preteen from my grandmother in about 1985. I taught myself to knit in 2010 by watching YouTube videos!
