About Me

Hi!  I'm e-beth, AKA Elisabeth, aka Beth.  I started this blog a number of years ago to document my knitting projects (this was in the dark ages, before Ravelry) and to participate in the growing online knitting community.  Now, I use the blog to share all of my crafty endeavors (sewing, embroidery, knitting) but I've kept the name because I'm primarily a knitter at heart (for now!).

Short Bio
I grew up in a small town (pop. 6000) in the middle of Iowa.  I still think of myself as a displaced Iowan even though I haven't lived there since 1992.  I attended Boston University (not to be confused with Boston College) majoring in Biochemistry and Molecular Biology.  While at BU, I met my husband and followed him to Chicago where he was working on his PhD in astrophysics.  In time, I started my own PhD program in Molecular Genetics and Cell Biology.  After 10 years (for real) I finished my PhD and moved to the San Francisco Bay Area where my husband has a job at NASA.  I've put my career on hiatus to be a stay-at-home-mom to our first child, Cate, who was born Dec. 5, 2011.
