My mother taught me to knit at about 9 years of age and I knitted regularly every winter until I was 20 years old. The next ten years I did a little hand knitting and then changed over to machine knitting. Then nothing for 28 years. I have now started up again after being sick for 9 months. It
was good to do something that was soothing and gave a sense of accomplishment. I am now well again and completely hooked!
