I was so excited to open the dresser and get my son’s sweater out that my grandma made for him.
I’m 32. And since I was 11 I wanted to learn how to knit. No one in my family knitted or crocheted but my mom knew how to start my stitches and teach me basic knitting so I started my first scarf.
That first scarf took me 7 whole years to complete. Yup 7! Full story on that another time 🙂 anyways, for years I wished I had grandmas that liked knitting and crocheting just cause I was so into that and wanted to have that fun cozy crafty feel time together 🙂 even got a bit jealous at times when my friends told me about their talented grannies that taught them how to knit/crochet.
In my 20’s I learned to hear that my grandma did knit but she hasn’t touched yarn for ages. I have been telling her for years she should get back to it. It’s funny that I ended up making her a few things instead of it turned around 🙂
I was so so happy to hear that once my sister and I discovered we were pregnant she suddenly decided to pick up the needles again and make us each something. It means a lot to me. Now that sweater season has begun he gets to wear his new made-with-love sweater 🙂
Share your story how you learned how to crochet/knit 🙂
