Lena, Illinois

When I was in the fifth grade, I attended a Christmas showing of 'Herbie" from Walt Disney Productions. On the way out of the theater, all the kids where given a Christmas gift. Mine just happened to be a Learn-to-knit Kit. I went home, taught myself what to do, and I've loved knitting ever since. I've also taught myself to crochet as well.
