I've been knitting since my grandmother taught me when I was about 5, she taught me to crochet at about the same time. I am now 62 . I can't knit or crochet as much as I used to due to arthritis in my hands and arms. SO I have started to explore the modern methods of knitting ,in other words somethings more up to date than queen Victoria's reign. Ns try to in corporate them into small things like scarves, gloves and hats.
