My name is Karina. I was born in Buenos Aires, Argentina and now I live in Denton, Texas. I’m married and I have two sons. I love to knit and in the last years I learned how to crochet. Of course I love to buy needles, yarn, bags and everything yarn related! I also believe, like any other knitter, that I never have enough yarn!
The reason I learned how to knit is because of my brother. I was almost 10 years old when my mom surprised me with the news! I was having a baby brother and he needed a blanket, booties and so on.
One day, my aunt put my first set of needles in my hand and some yarn. My first stitches were purl and I felt IN LOVE!!
I have never stopped knitting. My therapy, my yoga, my free time is always trying to find a new yarn store, a teacher, a place to knit, a group with fellow knitters. I rather spend money on yarn or magazines than on anything else.
I love handmade things. They are great gift to show how much you care for another person. I love when my friends or family buy me magazines or yarn or anything for my craft. I love my knitting group, the one who meets at B&N every Wednesday and the one I have on Facebook. I love that this year I went to a Fiber Fest.

When I travel with my family, my husband knows he needs to stop in at least one yarn store in the new city we are visiting.
Now , that I don’t live in my home country, two of my favorites activities when I’m going to visit my family are going to classes, or visiting my teachers.
My mom told me that only I can spend money on this because, let me tell you, my mom hates all related to knitting or cooking or anything craft involved.
Within the years I knitted the most important projects of my live; the first things for my sons.
