Calling all knitters

Posted Wednesday, November 30, 2011, at 1:03 PM

In holding true to my Mothers wishes I'm sharing this with anybody that would like to start a new family tradition. My Mother started making these in about 1951, mine was the first. If you or anyone you know would like the pattern and a full sized picture, e-mail me through my link on this blog.

I never could knit past the first row.

I made all of us Christmas Stockings. I have 2 old fashion Santa patterns and I use the patterns to knit Santa into dog sweaters

Knitting was my Mothers relaxation.

I appreciate that. My relaxation was/is horses. Don't knkow what will happen if I can't get out there. I guess I'll have to get a rocking chair with a saddle!

I don't know why Roy, I am just slow that way. It took me forever to learn how to embroidery. I had other talents to discover as I got older.

I could probably do it now if I tried. But I am sure it would look very different than anyone else's.

I'm an almost 61 year old transplant from California 6 1/2 years ago. I work in road construction, those dastardly flaggers. My family roots go back to New England farms, not the big city. The last town I lived in when in California grew from 16K to 40K in 10 years, and that was enough to drive me out. I don't engage in or tolerate name calling. Name calling reduces an adult discussion to grade school play yard level. I have never served in the military, but have family members who have, dating back to WW1. I am neither a Democrat nor a Republican. I am neither extremely Liberal or Conservative. I am raising my 16 year old grandson, not what I expected at this age, and dealing with those issues as well as my health and near retirement which are 2 things I intend to talk about. I decided to try my hand at this thanks to the warm welcome I have received on Mike's blog. When I take a position, I will defend it until I am shown that I am mistaken, and when that happens, I apologize. There are other things about me that will come out over time I'm sure.
