I am an avid knitter! My mother-in-law tried to teach me to knit "English-style" 30 years ago when I was expecting our first child to no avail. It just felt awkward! Then 8 years ago a sign appeared in a local gift shop advertising "Learn to Knit" for $5. I signed up, and the teacher taught "Continental-style" and I took to it like a duck to water! I've not stopped knitting since. I especially enjoy color work and cables.
