Thanks for the poll summation. I AGREE !!!!!

I have been able to finally pass on my knitting knowledge to my daughter, who in her 50s decided to REALLY get into the swing of it.

Thanks, Clara, for the summation. A great way to show that we really are alike in more ways than not. It was a breath of fresh air.

I agree with the poll numbers. Have passed on the knitting bug to one daughter who re-learned at 32. Now to teach my 14 yr. old granddaughter to knit. This is a challenge.

Thanks Clara for your poll summation. It is refreshing to see what brings us together instead of our differences. Also makes me feel a little better I am not the only one that falls behind in knit-alongs.

Ah, Margaret said what I was going to say, great Motto, Clara!

"Knit and Let Knit"

I have three knitting DDs. And hopefully we will finally bring the other one into the flock at some point. :)

Yep, there is a lot in common, and dispite the differences we still jump in and wallow in fiber and knitting and help eachother when we can. Love, love, love the motto Clara!

Great Job Clara in reviewing all those polls and presenting such great highlights. We can agree to disagree about yarns, needles, patterns, designers, and whether to knit one or purl two! Bottom line, thre's nothing like "Knit,Sweet Knit"!



Blessings,

What a great idea the summation was. I didn't know I missed it until I saw it and realized I had been wondering about those things. Thanks, Clara.

Great presentation of polling info. I wonder if the spiritually calming and centering aspects of knitting which exist in harmonious tension with the energizing creativity of the work is fully appreciated among knitters. If you have explored this, I am unaware of it, but I have only recently joined the online knitting community. I enjoy Knitting Review forums and I am always happy to see the newsletter in my inbox. Stay well, Susan

Knit on with confidence and hope through all crises. EZ

I bet it is, even though most of us would expess it differently.
There are also tons of books and websites on the subject.
