Grandma lived 1500 miles awa7
Created By: Helen Young

My mother taught my daughter to knit. I didn't know how at the time because I never could sit still long enough. My mother lived in PA and we lived in CO at the time. When we got back to CO my daughter had a problem with her knitting and needed help. Not being able to send it cross country each time she needed help, I had to learn to knit. I used the same old book my mother gave her to use. Since then when I have had time I have been able to teach her daughter (she didn't stick with knitting - she likes to crochet better)

It was a neat bond between my granddaughter and myself.

I have since been laid up and found the time goes faster and gifts are more appreciated when made by hand. Without it life would be awful boring. It helps pass so many hours. I knit some, crochet some, sew some because my hands get sore and I can only do one thing for a short time. It is so easy to go back to.
