Knitting & Crochet
My Aunt Martha taught me to knit when I was very young, maybe nine or ten. I have been knitting over the years. I learned to crochet the ripple blanket in my 30's when I was visiting my sisters-in-law in Austin, Texas. I found that I prefer to make items for other people. I crocheted at least 10 ripple designed afghans for family members over the years (the green and white blanket pictured). I still have three projects waiting to be finished for me; but as I said, I like to knit and crochet for others before me.
