Christina GilesI began knitting shortly after 911.  The world was so chaotic and I had a ton of anxiety.  I read an article that explained how knitting was “yoga for the mind.”  I was looking for something to quiet the storm in my head.  So…I took a class at a little yarn shop by my house in Long Beach, CA and that was it--I found the peace of mind I was looking for.  Knitting has been my passion for over 15 years now.  I worked in a beautiful yarn shop in Southern California where I also taught knitting for 10 years.  I recently moved to Southern Oregon and I love it here!  I also enjoy reading, hiking, craft beer and baby goats.
