I taught myself to knit 40 years ago.My mother had disowned me after I was married, and thanks to knitting, a loving husband, and children I retained my sanity. I am now a constant knitter, I only wish there was someway to knit at work, I have so much knitting to do and so little time. Knitting is my sanity saver after a day at work I can come home pick up my project and just feel the tension drain from my body. I am now teaching my oldest granddaughter to knit and knitting supplies are a major part of her Christmas, I am so pleased that someone thinks enough of what I do to want to do it also.

pcknits, it is really wonderful that you have been able to have such a fulfilled life because of knitting! It is great that your granddaughter so obviously appreciates what you are doing for her. While a knitted item is a lovely gift for someone - IMHO the giving of the means to knit (as in teaching to knit) is even better. A bit like the saying about showing how to fish as opposed to giving the fish will feed the man for a lifetime. Long may her interest last!

I bet you're really proud of your knitting grand daughter! That's so cool that she likes something you do! Have you knitted with her at all? Well, I hope to see you in here again!


Laugh- it keeps you sane!
