July 5th,2008 a little about my knitting background

I started knitting back in 1974, at a shop in Wichita, Kansas called Knit Knacks. I was pregnant with my first child then, who turned out to be my first son, Christopher. My mother and I went in and saw all the beautiful yarns, patterns and signed up for classes with Kelly. We enjoyed many years of friendship with the owners, Max and Virginia Brubaker.
Kelly wanted me to start on something easy, but no, I had to be one to take the bull by the horns and I wanted to knit a baby christening blanket. I did knit the christening blanket and Christopher wore it for his baptism. Last year, I gave it to him to keep at his house.
I knitted my middle son and christening outfit and my daughter Sara, a christening blanket.
I have also knitted doll clothes, dish cloths, sweaters, etc. I knitted my daughter Sara a vest when she was in grade school, she wore it till she just couldn't wear it anymore, I washed it and kept it and when my daughter Shanya was in elementary school, she wore it. My granddaughter, Sierra has worn it, so it definitely was well made and got my money out of it.
Now that all but Shanya are all grown, and I have grandchildren, I still knit.
But I have discovered one thing.....................................

LACE SHAWLS!!!!!!!!!!
