With Grandma leaving I want to say THANK YOU. We appreciated your help and enjoyed having you stay with us. We will miss you, and most of all we will miss your help with knitting and sewing.
Grandma taught my daughter to knit when she was 6 years old. We all thought she was too young, but she wanted to learn so grandma tried. Well she not only did it, she loved it. She has made legwarmers, hats, headbands and doll clothes. Now she is working on her first fair isle project.
I actually learned about 6 months after my daughter and really enjoy knitting too. My first project was about 4 inches wide and 10 inches long. It was a piece of knitting with no real purpose except to teach me all the different stitches. When that was finished I made a hat which required knitting, purling and decreasing. Since I wanted to use some of the stitches I had learned, my second project was a cable knit sweater. It was wearable, but let's just say I learned a lot.
Jemma is already sewing by hand and with the machine. She can knit with the knifty knitter. Soon it will be her turn to learn to knit and this hobby will be officially passed on.
