I was taught to knit by my daughter who took up the craft at school. I retired a few years ago and she thought knitting would be a relaxing way to pass the time and would allow me to continue exercising my creativity. It's been wonderful so far, although progress has been rather slow. I can make basic garments like scarves quite handily, but more complex patterns can sometimes be a struggle. However, I usually manage in the end! My daughter is always available should I need any help.
