I was four when my Grandma taught me.
I remember thinking I had worked out a quick way to knit, by simply slipping stitches from the left hand needle to the right.
It took me some time to realise that if you did that, the knitting wouldn’t actually grow.
Later on my friends could all knit & we would sit in each others’ houses, talking and making clothes for our dolls.
I used to love going to the wool shop with mum & looking at all the different coloured wools and patterns. They sold ribbon too & I would mither mum for new hair ribbons.
When I was 8 I made a pink cardigan for myself.
I love knitting but I still don’t like sewing the pieces together!
