I've been knitting for about 6 years. I had a very good and patient friend teach me, (thanks Mary)! I love to knit anything, but I really like to knit mittens, scarfs, hats, socks and dish cloths. I take my knitting everywhere I go. People are always asking what am I working on now!! Knitting is my way to relax. My inspiration to knit came from my mother-in-law. She was from England and her mother taught her how to knit when she was 5. She was such a good knitter. She is no longer with us and how I wish I could just sit and knit a little something with her!
