Retired Home Economics teacher, I love old but-still-functional sewing machines, and knitting. Love to knit wool socks, and small
afghans, and baby items, like caps. bootees, and sweaters. Last year I learned to knit gloves and fingerless mitts. These are truly
handy items and usually are welcome gifts. I am mother of four adults, 12 grandchildren, and 3 great grandchildren. Most of them
do not live near by, so I enjoy sending knitted or sewn gifts when I can.
