-the topic for this blog carnival was 'something you did as a child that you will always remember', for me I chose the time my mother first taught me to knit.
I remember being so excited to learn, yet so frustrated by my efforts. I would concentrate so hard that my stitches would get tighter, and tighter, and then I couldn't get the needle in to make another stitch!
Although, my early attempts often ended in frustration, it instilled in me a lifelong passion with the art of knitting. So when a friend decided to start a knitting group, I jumped on the chance, and relearned an old skill - and now it is one of the things that makes me me, and gives me happiness!
