creating love
Created By: Theresa Keller

Mom had tried to teach me to crochet; but it was an Aunt who did when I was a girl. As a teen, Mom took me to her favorite yarn shop; where they tried to teach me to knit. They looked at the progress and did not comment. The beautiful sweater started was not to be finished, stitches all uneven. I did not think about knitting for a long time.

Years later; after marriage and children; crochet was fun; a way to make a baby shower blanket. Somehow, a strong desire to learn to knit came over me. Away to the craft store: there was a kit teaching to knit; with a book of patterns. After making a few scarves and hats; next were baby blankets, & sweaters!

I loved to knit! I loved to make things for my friends and family. People started to give me yarn that they didn't use. I made a large blanket for my bed; and one for my daughter's bed. I made my kids sweaters. I could whip up a baby shower blanket in no time. I've made baby sweaters, hats, and booties too. I wished I did all that for my own kids; but now I can for others. Our women's group gives a baby shower to single moms in our county once a year; Lots of women like to make things as I do.

I love Lion Brand yarn for it's quality and selection & availability in my craft stores. I especially like Trellis; I've made shawls for myself & friends. With Homespun, I made prayer shawls and scarves. Adding Fun Fur; I made a poncho. I always get compliments on my creations.

It's a wonderful way to show my love at Christmas; with mittens and ornaments. A favorite thing to make now is socks! Currently; I am crocheting an evening bag with beads. These could be presents next; don't tell!

I am always amazed at how this process takes a fiber and makes something lovely to share my love with. When I meet a fellow knitter; I have met a friend! This is a wonderful thing! I love knitting! It is magic to me.
