I saw a woman knitting at market. I thought to myself, "I haven't knitted in a long time." I learned how to knit as a young girl in Primary class at church. One year we learned how to embroider, the next year knit; and the next year we learned how to crochet. I am so glad we did. My daughter knits...she taught herself from this Internet site. So, for a change of scenery I am knitting a few wash cloths, and crocheting a few hot pads..... happy knitting to those who knit! If you want to start, invest in bamboo needles....they make all the difference!
