My grandmother taught me how to knit when I was five. I was amazed when I looked back how great the first sample of knitting was - WHO TOOK OVER THOSE NEEDLES WHEN I WAS IN BED). She then taught me how to crochet, and I never stopped, there were these Cindy dolls that needed a wardrobe. I didn't mind making clothes for dolls, but wasn't really into playing with them. I started knitting again when I worked briefly at a wool store as a very young woman, and haven't stopped since. I love knitting for my family and will spend hours on all sorts of interesting and intriguing patterns for them. My latest knits have been for my youngest granddaughter (she's the one in the photo).
I have enjoyed reading the tips and have picked up some great ways to cast on. Thanks Knitting Daily.
