I learned to knit at an early age of 6, taught by my grandmother during February school vacation... in 1968. Of course she cast on for me, but I took off with it. I haven't knitted daily since then, but have made many knitted projects, for myself, my husband and kids. Kids sweaters are the best place to learn a new technique since the project isn't overwhelming. I love to knit and find that in February I just have to knit a project. I seem to be in a lace mood lately, working on my third lace project, a summer shell in red with lace edges from Intereweaves Best of Book.
