Why did you first get interested in knitting?

It's in my blood! Mom, grandmother, sister, aunts, great-aunts all were/are knitters. Daughter has no interest; granddaughter does, thanks goodness.

Who taught you to knit?

My father! He worked in an auto factory in Detroit during WW2 and it was converted to tank manufacture. So he didn't have to go to war. Everyone at home was knitting things to send to the soldiers and I wanted to learn.

How long have you been knitting?

Just about my whole long life!


Long-time knitter, crocheter, fiber person. Love to meet other knitters from North side of Chicago. Can't make it to meet-ups downtown.
