How Wonderful and I bet she's smiling down on you as you sort through all her knitting goodies! My biggest dream is for my granddaughter to learn and love knitting!

Your granny would be thrilled for you to have her knitting stuff and for you to be so excited to get it.

my gran actually tried to teach me since i was about 14 to knit. i just couldnt get what she was talking about. she was left handed but knitted right handed (odd i know lol), but it made learning hard. i have been using her old yarns patterns and needles from the start. i try and make things for my son with her yarn as i know she would love that. she adored my son far far more than me or my mum (her daughter), so it was always kind of fitting that that happened.

i just need to learn to crochet now as one of the patterns i have to do as its georgous needs crocheted sleeves and hood lol.

well better get back to the needles as i have soooo much i have to get made hehe.
