- Doctor Knitter I am an emergency medicine physician with a degree in Public Health/ Tropical medicine, a mother of 3 boys, and an avid knitter. At age 40 I stopped practicing medicine and took up knitting to fill the hours
waiting for my children at their myriad activities. "Nolens Volens" means "whether willing or unwilling." I use it to
describe my relationship with knitting because sometimes I make time for
my craft, but sometimes I knit to fill the time. Busy hands and an active mind, both benefits of knitting, keep me healthy and fulfilled.
