I was spending time at the shore with my sister and she was always knitting. So, what else could I do but learn to knit. This was about five years ago and I have become more advanced by knitting with a group of ladies that meet every week to knit. I have now learned how to make socks, did some sweaters, one a fair isle, many scarves and blankets and afghans and now I am tackling lace. I just love Laura Nelkin's class.
