Life lessons learned
Created By: Teresa Jeffries

When I was 8 years old, my mother went back to high school to get her diploma. She had dropped out to get married. In Home Ec. they learned to knit. She had already taught me to embroider, so this seemed natural to do. I seemed to catch on quickly, and began begging for yarn to knit with. My daddy worked for the Plant Pathology Mississipi State University and would bring home big spools of twine they used to tie up plants with. I used spool after spool. The 'scarf' I was knitting kept getting longer and longer. Finally when it had reached 8 feet, Daddy asked me why I didn't stop. I replied, "Mother never taught me that part!" Well, I finally learned to cast off, and after getting married, I carried a love of all things needlework with me. A Korean neighbor taught me to make a sweater, and from then on there was no stopping me. I learned that there is no such thing as idle time. I never sit down without some sort of needlework in my hands. I got so good at knitting I can do it without looking at it, which makes it great for car trips, karate lessons, all sorts of things. My family has definately benefited from my hobby, as they have gotten afghans, sweaters, scarves and baby layettes. I cannot imagine life without it.
