When she passed away all her knitting and crocheting tools were left to me. I miss her it would be great to tell her that I am finally learning to knit.
My aunt was an expert knitter, too! She would buy yarn from Ireland and make beautiful Irish fishermen's sweaters w/ leather buttons. My cousin's Winnie the Pooh bear even had its own Irish Fisherman's sweater! Sadly, my aunt passed away from breast cancer years ago, or I'd be getting advice from her, too.
