Kristina here. I live in Toronto in the St Clair and Bathurst area, I am a tenant and I knit way too much. I also watch Law and Order Criminal Intent way too frequently (and in past, I have watched inordinate amounts of L&O and SVU as well - and probably will again in future).
One of my favourite pastimes is knitting while watching LOCI reruns (or other television - other favourites include British police procedurals and (gasp) Iron Chef America.
To pay for my yarn habit, I practice law in the not for profit sector and have done so for a few years (and after all the practice I've become not too bad at it). My field is administrative law - mostly landlord and tenant. As a tenant, I'm lucky enough to have a spare bedroom to stash all of my WIPs and materials. Works in progress include a denim knitted bag (have to sew in lining - HATE sewing!) and a fluffy spring scarf. Am going to endeavour my first pair of socks shortly.
Some samples of my work:

I also do mosaic, mostly with stained glass or old plates which I break (I am of Greek heritage, so I'm very good at the plate smashing too). Here are some samples:
Fiesta chair - my own design - old Fiestaware (OPA!), tiles, dollar stope beads and a chair I found and repaired)
The Four Seasons - my own design - a disassembled windchime, stained glass and dollar store beads.
And in past I've been known to do needlepoint:
counted cross-stitch (from a kit - can't remember whose. Sorry)
I do some crochet but prefer knitting.
And obviously, from the above, I am NOT a talented photgrapher ;-) I also can't draw or paint to save my life. But then - how many talents can one person have?! [online voice dripping with sarcasm]
