Well said Dobek1011.
Knitting also for me is my connection to my mother, grandmother, great-great grandmother, and on and on. All the women in my family I have loved and looked up to knitted. Now with all of them gone, I feel close to them when I knit. Seeing my dds 4 and 2 interested and beginning to learn to knit is an example of the connections of all generations before and those to be.
