This is the picture of the afghan that I made for my mom, and the story of how I have come to love knitting.

In 2005, at the age of 14, I wanted to learn how to knit. Mom was good at crocheting, but mom had learned to knit when she was a teenager and had knitted her first project, a poncho, using the knitting stitch. I liked the look of the stitching that my interest was so strong in wanting to learn, that I had my mom show me how to cast on to the needle and how to do the knitting stitch. I began beginner knitting and enjoyed it so much that I wanted to further my skill in the craft. So I began buying magazines and books on knitting, and began increasing my ability to knit further. I also found some videos on how to knit and they helped me even more on the skill. Since then, I have learned so much and has taught myself what I know of knitting, that my mom says I have the ability of an intermediate plus in the skill. In the summer of 2008, my mom had seen "The Tree of Life" afghan on your website and told me when I finished all my other knitting projects, that she wanted to see if I could make this one for her. I looked at the pattern and told her it would be a "breeze"! I began making it in late August, 2008, and finished it in late October, 2008. It took me about 2 months to finish it, and my mom is so very proud to own something I made for her. I also have made my grandmother, my mom's mother, one also. Mom says I have the ability and confidence to teach a knitting class if I ever get the opportunity to do so. And I pray one day I will!
