I started knitting when I was just 11 yrs old. It looked like a map with dropped stitches and added stitches. Disaster! My Grandma, Betsy, taught me to crochet when I was 7 yrs old.
I didn't then knit again until I was 21yrs old. Then at Uni I decided to knit a mohair sweater with the help of the girls in my Halls of Residence. The mohair got everywhere. Even places I'd never been! (Most incriminating!)
Over the years I started projects on my own only to lose my way and abandon them to the loft.
Then I met a great friend, Sally, who'd been knitting since she was 7yrs old and at the same time a new weekly magazine came out:
The Art of Knitting. I was hooked!
I have now successfully completed several knitting and crochet projects.
