|Grandma with one of her beautiful creations|
I have my grandma to thank for my love of knitting. I continue to knit almost daily, and have slowly but surely increased my speed and my skill. I love selecting a new project, starting it, seeing it all come together, and finally finishing it. Every time I make something new, I think "I wish I could show this to Grandma." My grandma passed away a few years ago. When she died, I made a promise to myself and to her, that all the kids in my family would get a blanket knit by me (and by extension, her), and in this way, I honour her and her memory can live on. She was a great woman, and I strive to make her proud whenever I endeavour on a new project.
