My mother and Grandmother could do any type of craft you could name. I tried crochet but was a dismal failure. My Grandmother started me on knitting and I was on my way. The only things I was successful at before was empbroidery. When I went to nursing school knitting and reading were two of the things I had to give up. My mom and Grandmother are now gone but I have started up again on my knitting and reading. So glad I did.
