    Knit One, Purl Two...

    My grandmother first taught me to knit when I was about five years old. It wasn't an active process. I used to sit in her lap while watching cooking shows on PBS, and she almost always knitted while watching tv. I basically learned to cook the same way, by sitting on the counter...

    I learned to knit when I was five from my

    mother. I didn't really have an interest for it until my mid twenties. Now I love it and would love to have someone to chat with that has similar interests.
