Really excited to have signed up for the swap. Looking forward to having "a new pal" and being able to share some Xmas goodies with them. Hannah and I (Hannah is 11 1/2) are both Scottish - have been living in Toronto for 5 years now. I have also lived in Australia, Africa, the Middle East - so I hope my new pal is from some far corner of the earth and I can visit her via the WWW! Xmas will be extra fun this year with someone else to share it with (usually it is just Hannah and I) and I can't wait (Hannah is also intrigued by the concept of it)! I used to knit a lot when I was younger and have only started again in the last year or so. I am teaching Hannah to knit as I want to pass the skill onto the next generation. Knitting is in my blood - my late Mum was an avid knitter (from the Orkney Islands and her ancestors are from the Faroe Islands, Fair Isle). It is also my form of therapy!
More later - back to the reality of the "modern world".
