My lifetime of knitting
Created By: Nancy Ludt

I began knitting in 1945, when I was 5 years old. My grandmother taught both my sister and I and even though my sister was quite a bit bonded us together forever. Sally was 8 years older then me and when she wanted to be with her friends...Mom always said that she had to take me too. When she wanted to be alone and listen to "records" - Mom said she had to let me be there too. It became a wedge that was driven between us, and we only had one thing in common. Knitting. She was always a better knitter then I, although I was pretty good. We knitted our way through all the trials of pain and joy in our lives. We knitted for each others new babies - for each other - for the grandbabies....always the bond that never broke. We may not have been speaking at certain times...but we knitted and shared the knitting via mail or through others. That bond was broken when Sally died suddenly in 2002. At first I couldn't knit because she wasn't there to advise me or to commiserate when I had to "unknit". Then I found that as time passed, and I picked up the needles, it was like a visit with Sally. I inherited her vast supply of yarn and accessories (she owned a yarn shop for quite a few years - so it was VAST), and each time I open a bag where she has an uncompleted project, I fondle the yarn gently and it's like a hug from my sister. I can almost feel her presence and I love every minute of it. Nancy Ludt
