Got the "crafty gene" from my mother; she crocheted. She passed away over 9 yrs ago. My sis passed away 2 1/2 yrs ago. Both of them were very knit-worthy! Knitting keeps me close to both.

Keep on knitting!

It is amazing how these things pass through families. My daughter is so like my mother but my Mum died when Anne was only about 3 and that was over 30 years ago. I often think how alike they are in their love of anything crafty. I knit, do machine embroidery and sew and also occasionally crochet but my Mum was into everything. She knitted so much, crocheted dresses for each of her five daughters - and we were all grown up - she iced cakes, (well I have done that too) but she would try anything that she found out about. Anne is like that too. She also does lovely paper craft stuff.

I knit a hug into every stitch

My mom was a wonderful baker but not much interested in needlework. Her mother taught me to knit, and did beautiful crocheting and needlepoint, some of which I still have.
