My mother and grandmother both knitted, and I was fascinated with the idea that a single strand of yarn could become something useful and lovely. I started knitting as a teenager, continued as a young adult, and then took a hiatus for over 30 years.
My grandmother taught me to knit. It was not an easy task, as I am left handed, and she was not. She was so patient as she helped me figure out how to make it work for me.
This time, for about three years.
I am a recently retired Middle School teacher. I moved here from Atlanta to be near my only son, my daughter-in-law, and grandson.
