Something new
Created By: J Jodie

Twenty two years ago whilst still at school, we were instructed to learn how to crochet, knit or sew. I remember being depressed about it for ages not knowing what to do, I already knew how to sew, whilst all my friends got on with something. My nan came for a visit from Australia ( I grew up in England) and she asked what was wrong. I told her and she said "No Problem!" I thought the woman had finally gone mad. We caught the bus into town and found this cute little shop that sold wool.

We walked in and my nan asked the sales assistant for an easy pattern for me to learn with, needles and wool.

Nearly an hour later we headed for home. She taught me enough to complete not one but two jumpers for a toddler and one even had cable on it. I had never been so pleased with myself, my teacher was thrilled and I got top marks for that project.

I have knitted so much now, I have lost count. I knit all sorts of things and even sold some of my creations. Knitting is so relaxing and is something very special I shared with my nan.

Now that she has passed away, whenever I knit it makes me think of her and what a wonderful past time she taught me. She will be remembered forever in what I knit.

Thanks Nan.

Now I am teaching my two daughters (10 & 6) to knit, they are really enjoying making little squares which are going to be stitched together to make their own unique blanket.
