how my knitting saved my life.
Created By: Hope Kaplowitz

Well my hobby became a solution for me. How, you may ask? It took my mind off problems for one, and food for other. Since I lost my mom to breast cancer, I had to keep busy. So I started to knit. And knit. My niece asked me to make her friend a blanket, which I was happy to. It also became a sort of business for me. My nephew started out just asking me for some blankets. And then I became a great aunt. And everything came into focus for me. I had to make something for her, and now I can't stop. Well my story tells the whole story. I learned that I can't say no to any family relative, or even a complete stranger I even taught one lady to crochet since I do that as well. I love keeping busy.

Right now I am making a blanket with Lion Brand yarns, in blue and white coordinates. And then I am adding light blue, which I have. And then I am making a throw for a friend.

I do garter stitch and sometimes I do a cable when I am bored. Thank You.
