 Barbara McIntire hails from Mountaintop, Pennsylvania.  She has this to say about her square:

I've been knitting on and off for 25 years, but more seriously for the last five.  My knitting focus is texture and cable patterns.  I started a small knitting group several years ago because I enjoy the company of other knitters.  I am a "professional volunteer" for our public library, and I teach knitting for community education.  My husband and I have two sons, 22 and 19 years old.

The Saxon braid cable in Barbara Walker's book caught my attention several years ago and I wanted to make it the focal point of my square.  The braided rib cable complements the Saxon braid to make a lovely example of Aran patterning.
