knitters and knitterhugs

My mother and grandmother were avid knitters. My mom told me stories about when she was 6 how her mother would roll a ball of yarn with a small toy in it and as my mother practiced she would unravel the toy. She also told me that during the time of WW II how my grandfather sharpened bicycle spokes to make knitting needles because metal was not used to make knitting needles at that time.
My story begins with the fact that I always wanted to learn how to knit but no matter how my mother tried, I could not grasp it.
Last year I signed up for a continuing education class at our local high school, giving it a go one more time. Little did I know that the woman teaching would be wonderful and I would learn to knit. Not only did I leaarn to knit but through knitting met a whole new circle of friends at a time in my life when friendship would be so important. During my course at the school, I was diagnosed with leukemia.
I cannot tell you how the friendship of so many new people has helped me through a tough time and how much the knitting has helped to take my mind away from things that I don't want to think about. What therapy. I also enjoy making and giving my projects away knowing that there is a little piece of me in every gift I give.
Last but not least, it has been such a joy to be able to sit with my mom, now 87, and knit together.
I wish I had learned sooner but truly the timing could not have been better.
