After four years in Korea, I left the military for the civilian world and held a few different jobs, mostly in marketing. While marketing didn't have a thing to do with making cool things, it DID give me a solid background that I now use everyday in how to market myself and my company.

Toni berkshire Hi, Lori - glad to meet you. Knitting books sounds good. I just finished, 'Died in the Wool', and Knit fast, Die Young, by Mary Kruger and Indigo Dying by Susan Witting Albert. Personally, I crochet, but haven't found many murder book series about crocheting, yet.
