Brief Biographical Sketch:

Hi!

I graduated MIT in 1999.

I have a bachelor's in computer science, with a minor in music.

and I love to create stuff.

lately, it's been sweaters, scarves, hats...things knitted out of yarn.

I love both the knitting itself and the finished objects.
(process knitter vs. product knitter).

I find the motions soothing, and love to see the progress I'm making. I really enjoy challenging patterns.
