Knitting Away


My friend, Laurie, gave me several old pictures that she knows I love, including this knitting mother and daughter. It's from an old Ladies Home Journal Magazine. This picture really reminds me of my mother teaching me how to knit many years ago. It's not a real easy thing to learn, but I finally got the hang of it! I have always enjoyed knitting and crocheting.
Lately, I have been doing a lot of knitting off and on while I am tending these two cute little grandbabies of mine. I can pretty much do it without looking, so I can watch them and the TV too! I have been making these wonderful dish cloths that I love to use. I made a bunch for my kids for Christmas and now I'm making a bunch more for my visiting teaching ladies. I'm so glad my mom taught me how to knit all those years ago!

Wow, it's been a long time since I've heard from you. I haven't been making the blog rounds much lately so I didn't even realize that you had blogging as well.

I was in Utah for Christmas and then Boise helping Rose out after she had surgery and then some other things she needed help with.

Your dish cloths are so much fun. I crochet them but I really like knitted ones better. I don't know how to knit though!!!

Blessings,
Christine

I learned to crochet from my Grandma I remember like it was yesterday sitting on the couch with her while she was teaching me. I would love to be able to share things I make with her now. Your family is beautiful. I have 7 grandkids and three children. My grandkids are my pride and joy. they are such a blessing.
