When I discovered a Texas company named Brooks Farm, I was fortunate to come across their Four-Play 50% wool and 50% silk yarn. Because of arthritis in my left hand, I decided to try this yarn at knitting a beret. As a result of knitting with this marvelous yarn, my left hand does not hurt as much as it used to. The yarn feels so good in my hands and I have knitted numerous hats for friends and several friends with cancer who needed them when their hair fell out. What a complete joy it is to give them hats that feel as good on their heads as the yarn does in my hands.

Several years ago I developed arithritis in my left hand and discovered that knitting might be helpful in easing the pain. So, I found knitting instructions on the web and started with the basics. That was about five years ago. At the same time Vickie Howell had a knitting show named Knitty Gritty and I received much encouragement from her by watching this show. I am constantly knitting while we watch Texas Ranger Baseball or just for enjoyment. A very dear relative contracted cancer and I immediately started knitting all kinds of hats for her because in chemo she was going to lose her hair. I've knitted hundreds and given away most of them to those I care deeply about. ` When I was a child my Grandmother taught me how to sew. In 2003 I earned an heirloom teaching license from Martha Pullen Bernina School in Huntsville, Alabama. I love to make delicate heirloom garments and children's clothes as well. Keeping my hands busy is a must in my life.
