KNITTING AND NEEDLING
My neighbor asked if I was interested in taking a knitting class once a month for a year. The finished project is a knitted quilt incorporating 12 blocks each one a different pattern. I knew how to knit and purl but that's about it so I said sure why not. My family laughed at the idea and called me an old lady. I came home with my first quilt block and pattern the next thing I know my 13 year old daughter and I are at the wool shop picking out wool for her.She was going to learn how to knit. She finished her first project a scarf and is on to her second project a scarf. Who says knitting is just for old ladies. How old are old ladies anyways?
