When did I start knitting? As long ago as I can remember, I guess. My mom taught me to knit and sew when I was very young. I don’t remember my first knitted piece, but I recall that in my teens I made a blue scarf, angora gloves, pink pullover, all very popular back then. I think I still have the patterns. We never throw them out, do we?

My mother showed me how to knit when I was around 8/10 years of age.  I was born in 1943, so knitting yarn was becoming more available at that time after the war in the U.K..

Opal

I learned the basics of knitting and crocheting as a child, inspired by my crafty Grandmothers. I made the usual teenaged scarves and a few blankets, but overall I was terrible at it, and it made my hands hurt, so I dropped it. I told myself I was “just bad at knitting” and took up web development and quilting instead.

My mother bought me my first ball of yarn from the drug store when I was 7 years old. It was a bright tangerine-coloured synthetic thing, which I suppose was very appealing to a child. I don’t recall exactly why I had any interest in having this yarn, but I have a feeling that it had to do with the fascination that I had with watching my maternal Grandmother knit.
