MY LOVE OF KNITTING KEPT ME GOING
Created By: BARBARA SCHNEIDER

ALL MY LIFE I WATCHED MY MOTHER SEW COSTUMES FOR MARIACHI BANDS SHE WAS A SEAMSTRESS ANF=D WHEN SHE WAS NOT SEWING WATCHING TV IN THE EVENING SHE WOULD CROCHET, WE ALWAYS HAD NEW SLIPPERS ANF GRAND BABIES NEW SWEATERS SO I LEARNED TO CROCHET. IT WAS INMY LATE 30'S A ELDERLY LADY I WORKED FOR HER COMPANY BROUGHT IN KNITTING TO THE OFFICE,I ALWAYS ADMIRED KNITTING BUT KNEW NOTHING ABOUT IT, THIS LADY TOOK ME UNDER HER WING AND SO BEGAN MY LOVE LOVE OF KNITTING. I WAS A QUICK LEARNER AND KNITTED DAILY THEN A COUPLE YEARS LATER I HAD BRAIN SURGERY AND IT PARAALYZED ME ON THE LEFT SIDE AND I COULD NOT KNIT ANY LONGER THAT WAS THE ONE THING I MISSED THE MOST.

AFTER ABOUT TEN YEARS I GOT FITTED WITH A REMOVABLE BRACE FOR MY LEFT HAND AND ONE DAY I DECIDED TO STICK A NEEDLE IN THE BRACE AND TO MY DELIGHT THE BRACE HELD MY LEFT NEEDLE!!!!! I CRIED I WAS SO HAPPY AND WENT TO THE GARAGE AND DUG OUT ALL MY NEEDLES AND YARN I COULD NEVER PART WITH AND AM HAPPILY KNITTING FOR 2 GRANDCHILDREN AND AM FINISHING A SWEATER FOT A NEW BABY COMING IN AUGUST 2007.

KNITTING IS MT STRESS BUSTER, MY WHOLE FAMILY HAS BENEFITTED FROM ME ABLE TO KNIT AGAN BECAUSE R=THEY SEE THE JOY AND PROUDNESS OF MY ACCOMPLISHNENT AND IT HAS TAUGHT ME ANYTHING IS POSSIBLE WITH DETERMINATION AND LOVE OF MY CRAFT

KNIT ON
