Life is Good
Created By: Edith Pallmann

I learned to knit at age 8 when my family was quarantined to the home, because my little sister had scarlet fever. Yes, back then (1938), whole families were isolated from the rest of the world to stem the spread of communicable and ofter fatal disease. A bored 8 year old was more than just a nuisance and Mother did not have a TV to fall back on at the time. I wasn't even allowed to go the library to get a new book and all my old books had been read to death. So, while my sister slept Mother taught me to knit. In ten weeks I knitted a scarf, untold numbers of pot holders and dish clothes and even a pair of really ugly stockings.

Helen recovered, I went back to school, and the years went by. I married and raised a family of my own and now that the hectic times are all a pleasant memory I have time to get back to my knitting. I have progressed to bigger and better things. I spend most of my days knitting mittens and hats for the church which distributes them to the needy, slippers and lap robes to go to nursing homes and of course all grand and great children need hats, scarves, mittens, socks, sweaters and you name it.

My pet project is my great-granddaughter who was born a dwarf. She is going on three and wears 18 month sizes. Finding suitable clothes in that size is difficult so Oma takes little girl patterns and reduces them to the proper size. A real challenge since my math skills are not very good. I play FROG a lot; you know RIIIIPPPPPIT.

Money is still scarce so the free patterns are a God send and yarns are often donated by friends and church members.

Life is good.
