Four Boys! Need I Say More!
Created By: Kate Decker

When I was a kid, every Spring Break was spent at my Grandma's house. I loved going to Grandma's she had Apple Jacks and Saturday morning cartoons. She would also crochet. Slippers and granny square afghans mostly. She also puts the edging and botton over hooks on kitchen towels. One spring break when I was probably nine or ten she taught me how to crochet. First just a simple chain stitch."Practice that for a while." she said. I single chained an entire skein of yarn! Then, she showed me hiow to make a granny square and when I left after that week she let me keep the crochet hook and the squares I had worked on. It was the start of a beautiful relationship! When I was in high school I made an afghan for my brother, doing the only stitch I knew how-the granny square. It turned out to be one very big square. But I had mande my first project. I put my hook aside for a few years and after I had my first three children ( all boys) I looked for something to occupy my hands. Something I could do but not watch my hands doing. I had always wanted to make a sweater and since I already "knew" how to crochet, I bought a kit on how to knit, one that came with all the supplies and thaught myself to knit. I loved it ! I can knit and watch the kids play. It was a great way to destress at the end of my day(I'm at four boys now, between the ages of 9 and 4) I have made countless projects and plan on a lifetime of more. Knitting has saved my life. I thank my grandma a thousand times over for teaching me to work a craft with my hands. I love it, love it, love it!!
