My Grandfather Carl
Created By: Cathy Hebert

My Story begins when I was about 9 or 10 years old. My grandfather lived across the street from us his whole life. We would always go there because he had little dogs and beautiful flowers growing in the yard, oh! and licorice candies in a bowl on the table. Anyways, he was always knitting something for someone in the family, mittens, jackets, afghans, etc.. (I still have a jacket he made for my brother and a pillow in storage). He crochets and did plastic canvas as well. Being a very crafty person to begin with I wanted to learn how to knit. My first knitting experience was a pair of mittens. Wow! 4 needles at once but I learned with patience and I have never looked back. Later in years I remember going to visit him and he was sitting on his rocking chair in the living room in front of the T.V. still knitting. I am proud of the fact that I was taught this craft by my grandfather. Everyone thinks of knitting as a woman thing but it's not it's a relaxing thing, it keeps your finger and thoughts busy. My grandfather passed away some years ago and I received all his knitting needles, which are very precious to me. When people ask me where I leaned how to knit I tell them with a warm heart My Grandfather Carl.

Thank You
