My granny taught me to knit, longer ago than I care to mention...

I work full time and use knitting (and textile art in general) to keep me sane ... Going to Glasgow School of Yarn on Friday ..#128512;

Welcome to the forums, from Maine. I, too, use knitting to keep me sane. Would love to hear more about the Glasgow School of yarn. Sounds fascinating!

I lived in Glasgow in the late '50's and early '60's ! My wool shop was the local "Beehive Wools".
I remember of course Shetland jumper weight, Munrospun, Beehive, and others.
I knitted a gorgeous twinset in soft pink Munrospun and wore it out!

My husband's people were from Govan, and we still have a few family there.
I love Glasgow! And how it has changed!
I went to the University for a year, then finished my degree here in the US. I live in Baltimore now.

I too learned to knit from my grandma, very long ago, and it is so nice to meet you!

I hope you will like the KR Forums as much as many of us do. Full of inspiration, friendship, support, knitting expertise, whatever!

Give the trams a hug from me....

Best wishes,
Anna

Life is beautiful.
