My nana taught me to knit sitting under the big old maple tree in the back yard on lovely wooden needles. I finished that red, gray and white stripped sweater before she died and she died when I was 12. Years later I knitted my babies baptismal gown and cap as well as many other baby things. Not currently knitting-work full time and full time college student. I want to get back to it for the beauty and relaxation of it.
