3KCBWDAY7 - Today is the last day of the 3rd Annual Knit and Crochet Blog Week Day 7.My great-grandmother, noting that I wanted to learn the skill of knitting, gave me a booklet (one of those green ones by Coats & Clark, I think: How to knit, crochet & tat). I taught myself to knit from that book - and to tat, too, for that matter - I used the crochet part as a refresher when I needed it. However, on the sort of funny side, I ended up being a continental knitter as I LOOKED at the pictures and FIGURED how to make the yarn do what the pictures showed, and since I am "severly right-handed" used my right hand to manipulate the needles and put the yarn in my left. I am also a very left-brained person and decided to figure how to make the least possible motions in the knitting - hence I ended up a "non-thrower".
I have a LARGE love affair with all things fiber / yarn / fabric and have been engaged in that affair since I was a small girl (that's nearly 60 years now) and I do not plan on stopping anytime soon!
