About Me

My photo

I live in beautiful Saratoga Springs, NY.  I have a husband who is a masters rower and a daughter obsessed with all things Japanese.  I'm a knitter and a spinner!  When I spin too much yarn I list it on my Etsy shop www.saratogaspinning.etsy.com.
My husband is also a master metalsmith and creates wonderful wrought iron wine racks displayed at www.oldworldwinerackdesigns.com.

I am a volunteer for the AFS student exchange program.  http://www.afs.org/
I'm saratogaknitting on Ravelry, llenz5743 Twitter and Lisa Lenz Lessard on Facebook and llenz57843 on Pinterest!  Come say hello!

What have you all been up to???  I've been taking a break, but now I'm back!  My biggest news is that the Rowing Cat spent 6 weeks in Japan this summer with the AFS program. 

She had an incredible time and met some wonderful friends.  What an experience!  I was soooo jealous :-)

Here she is in her host mom's Summer Kimono - great color!

They had a cooking demonstration class with all of the students and their host families.
