Hello everyone, I'm Dossha, the proud mother of 9, grandmother of 24 and the great grandmother of 8. My husband and I came together and formed the black edition of the Brady Brunch plus 3. I love knitting and crocheting, I've been doing it since I was 12, never really improving. But now, I'm learning more and more about the craft and loving it and with all these grands and great grands around, I have more than enough reasons to learn even more.

Hi, and welcome to the KR Forums, Dossha! If you have family reunions, they must be well-populated, you lucky lady!

I am from Baltimore, and our kid and grand kids are in France! We have been able to visit them, but it is too far away for this grandma !

You said you had never really improved in your knitting, but from age 12, I bet you improved mightily year by year! And now, it is fun, isn't it, to be in this knitting world where so much knowledge and inspiration is shared! Please let us know what you are knitting, and how it is going!

Sadly, I have been in a"black hole" with my knitting recently, caring for my husband who has Alzheimer's disease. I want to start a pair of socks, but don't get around to it....I think I will, once life calms down a bit, (if it ever will)

Meanwhile, we're glad you signed on the Forums, and hope you will post early and often!

Best wishes,

Anna

Life is beautiful.

Welcome Dossha! With such a large family you have plenty of motivation to keep working at it. You are so lucky to have so many people to create for.

Oh and Anna (eldergirl),

Be sure that you do start those socks. Don't forget to take care of you while you are taking care of your husband. It is very easy to get caught up in taking care of someone else, especially when dealing with such a complex disease, that you loose sight of your own physical and emotional needs. Keeping yourself strong and centered will make you a better caregiver for him. Socks will be perfect for keeping your hands busy and your mind at ease.
Best of luck.

Hi, Dossha, Baby things are a great way to improve one's skills at the same time as actually making something. You can practice a lace pattern you like, or a collar, or shaping, or ... whatever! All on a teeny, tiny canvas, so it's fast! (Love that.)

Welcome to KR!

How do.

Anna, I love Michelle's encouraging tho'ts & I second them - try to care for yourself too. I can only imagine how hard that is & I hope that knitting will bring some good exhale-worthy moments for you.
