We all have reasons for why we enjoy knitting. We love the whole process of picking a project, choosing the yarn, learning new stitches, creating the fabric and putting the pieces together. The best part about the process is when we wear our finished knit wear or give it to someone who loves our talents.
We are all special knitters. We all create heirlooms that can be passed from one generation to the next. We all love sharing skills, talents and friendships with other knitters.
I learned to knit from my mother and grandmother. My own mother, Anne, is almost 80 and still knits every day. She is currently making my Dad a pair of socks and making a baby blanket for a new grandson.
I can only hope that I am still creating when I am at the same stage of life as these wonderful ladies!
