I'm Patti and I live in Lacey, WA. I've been a spindle spinner for about two years, but now have purchased a table loom and am starting to weave. My first project--4 placemats, with mostly my handspun yarn.

I signed up for SparkPeople two years ago, but didn't make much headway or do much with it until after my hip surgeries at the end of 2013. I don't know exactly why it became such a fun challenge for me to lose the weight healthfully and check out all the bennies SparkPeople ...

I signed up for SparkPeople two years ago, but didn't make much headway or do much with it until after my hip surgeries at the end of 2013. I don't know exactly why it became such a fun challenge for me to lose the weight healthfully and check out all the bennies SparkPeople has imbedded in the program. I love the SparkPoints and the Teams. It's become a game with me to get as many points and do as much exercise as I can.

In August I walked a 5K race. It was a big step from not being able to walk without a walker at the beginning of the year! And I realized that I've made my goal weight--so I've declared myself in Maintenance and am now taking on that challenge, too. So far I've been at weight for 2 months now and counting.

Thank you for your kind words. I have just started knitting and I love it, I am also looking forward to picking up crochet again and I dabble in needle point. I must say that I checked a couple of the knitting teams and I was drawn to your team. You have a charisma about you that pulls people in and I look forward to learning lots and enjoying the team. Have a wonderful Thanksgiving.

Hi Patti,

thank you for the warm welcome to the spin me a yarn team. I appreciate that. Also thank you for the friend add.

I enjoy both knitting and crocheting. I also like to make quilts. I usually just knot those rather than quilting the finished product! Quicker that way and then I can get on to the next project.

I hope you are having a good weekend!
Glenna
