I started with crafts when I was about 9 years old. I learned to knit, and I still remember everything about that experience: from the yarn (a cherry red worsted, purchased at the Woolworth store downtown), the needles (a lovely set of pink aluminum size 11), the project (a poncho, with white fringe - ala Santa!). It was made with simple stockinette stitch in a rectangle shape, and then folded into the poncho, with the fringe added. I had the parents on the block paying me to teach the other children (who frankly, were not that interested in learning to knit!). I didn't give up teaching, though, I have taught classes in beadwork and crafts, and it's always very satisfying to see someone get 'hooked' on a creative pursuit.
