one dollar start
Created By: Linda Hale

I started knitting about one year ago, when Target started selling all kinds of yarn and knitting needles at a low price. I decided I could start a new hobby, and with the additional help of some library books, I learned to cast on and then complete a scarf and first sweater.

A neighbor came by, and the gift of some needles, two skeins of yarn, and some copies of knitting instructions got her started knitting a scarf for a walking companion of hers.

My experiences also helped a stepdaughter get started, becuase I was able to describe the trials and pitfalls of learning how to knit, like initially uncoordinated fingers, etc...

Finally, knitting improved my hand strength for weightlifting,golf, and tennis. That was a huge surprise! I can actually lift free weights continuously for 1/2 hour now! Playing golf or tennis after being absent from the game for awhile isn't aproblem anymore. Who would've thought knitting could improve sports fitness?
