I've been waiting for this moment since the day the sonographer told me I was expecting a girl!
She's quite keen and it's nice to have company in my solitary knitting.
It was the same for me, my mum taught me. I started to knit and crochet when I was around 6 years old and at 7 I was selling my crochet pot holders and doilies to the ladies in the neighbourhood. My mum and I spent a lot of time knitting together, that was my play time with her. Most of the knitting things I know I learnt it from her and from her friends. Knitting is a staple of my life, something I never stopped doing no matter if it was fashionable or not.
Now I can knit without even watch it: the "nonna" of a friend of mine used to knit all day sitting outside in the balcony (in warm weather of course) and looking over us play in the backyard. I'm quite fond of those memories.
