Anika learned how to knit! Oh, the fun we'll have now :)
I learned to knit from the Great Aunt Mary, my grandmother's sister, who made us sweaters every year as she knit her way through English winters. She visited in the summer-time and in the week where I visited Grandma and Grandpa, she taught me knitting. My mom taught me a lot, too, as she is an incredible knitter (Ian's blue-striped sweater is one creation). As a kid, I knit sweaters for my dolls mostly. In high school I started knitting hats. Mostly patterns that I made up. I can't knit very much now. Fingers go numb. But I'm excited to see the tradition pass to the next generation. Sweet!
