I've been addicted to knitting ever since Miss Gaul and her sister (two elderly women who lived across the street from me) taught me to knit when I was seven years old. I LOVE to knit toys, dolls, socks, baby sweaters, hats, shawls, scarves, afghans - oh dear - I guess I like to knit anything. One of my daughters thinks I can knit anything. I've knit her zombies, flowers, an alien autopsy, owls, elephants, etc. most recently, she asked for a nerve cell and guess what? I found a pattern for one. It seems like one can find a pattern for anything these days. It's wonderful. I love that the internet has allowed us to learn about designers and yarns from all over the world.
