About Sandy Atkinson
I am a Kidney Transplant recipient 2014. In the years leading up to kidney failure, I taught myself to knit so that I would still be productive when the day came that I would be too sick to work. ... I take great joy in expanding my skillset and creating new items that I have never made before. I write many of my own patterns and tend to modify existing designs to fit the personality of the person who is receiving the item. It brings me joy to knit and crochet anything that someone will love.show moreOpen to other proposals
